FH430 the signature footstool

By Carl Hansen


  • Description

    Frits Henningsen was one of Denmark's most distinguished designers of the early twentieth century. Designed in 1954, the pared-back lines and fluid curves of the Signature Chair and Footstool exemplify his uncompromising purist approach.

    This supremely elegant design was one of the last pieces of furniture that Henningsen produced, with fewer than twenty chairs of this type initially manufactured. Now reissued by Carl Hansen & Son, the Signature Chair and Footstool is for the first time available to a wider audience. Its restrained and timeless design ensures it will be perfectly placed in a range of interior settings.

    Frits Henningsen
    Frits Henningsen (1889-1965) was known as an uncompromising designer. He viewed quality craftsmanship as the most important element of his work, making it his focus when developing new furniture. Unlike other cabinetmakers, Henningsen always created his own furniture pieces - although his greatest desire was to be recognized as a cabinetmaker and not as a furniture designer. In his designs, Henningsen was able to capture traditional expressions from other style periods and reinterpret them with a modern and organic flavor. He drew inspiration from earlier styles such as French Empire, Rococo, and British 17th-century furniture, much like one of the other great furniture designers of his day, Kaare Klint. The two designers met at technical college, where Kaare Klint was one of Frits Henningsen's teachers.
