China Chair™

By Fritz Hansen


  • Description

    The China Chair™ was designed by Hans J. Wegner, in 1944 and it stands out as the only solid wood chair in the Fritz Hansen collection. Wegner found inspiration for this timeless classic in Chinese chairs from the 17th and 18th Centuries. The China Chair epitomizes his lifelong quest to understand the nature of wood and explore its possibilities. In Wegner's modern interpretation of ancient Chinese chairs, he unfolds his talent as a wood craftsman along with his flair for expressive and sculptural functionalism.
