Carl Hansen & Søn, DK c. 1968 Materials: Oak, paper cord Dimensions: 71 (H) x 71 (W) x 73 (D) cm Seat height: 34 cm Condition: very good
One of the many design icons by Hans J. Wegner for Carl Hansen & Son, Denmark designed in 1951. Great collaboration between aesthetics, comfort, craftsmanship and use of materials. The oak frame has many curved details. The paper cord is hand-woven in a manner that combines strength with a nice pattern.
This example from 1968 is in very good original condition and signed with manufacture decal. The oak has the typical warm honey color that it acquires after several decades. The paper cord is also slightly discolored and gives the total an authentic look.
