HANS WEGNER 'CIGAR CHAIRS'
Hans Wegner (1914-2007) is one of the most respected and prolific mid-century Scandinavian designers.
Over his lifetime, he designed over 500 pieces that were put into production. Some 50 years after their inception many remain in production while dozens of vintage models are highly sought after on the secondary market.
His "Cigar Chair" is a perfect example of understated yet delightful Danish design.
First produced in 1955 in Denmark, the chair is interesting from every angle.
We especially like the uneven grid on the chair's back - a simple structural element gives the chair personality and geometry.
Our client added custom cushions (in Paul Smith's rainbow pinstripe wool fabric) that were intentionally short to reveal this feature.
This pair of chairs is both casual and glam, comfortable and sculptural...perfect example of mid-century Danish design for the 21st century interior.
