Back in 1960, Danish design legend Hans J. Wegner sketched an upholstered easy chair which saw only limited production. Now, Carl Hansen & Son, the Danish furniture maker, has dusted off the drawings to bring this contemporary classic back to life. The look of the Wingchair (CH_445) is unmistakably Hans J. Wegner. Like other of his best chairs, sculptural lines allow it to stand on its own in a variety of settings. Among Wegner's easy chairs, the Wingchair is notable for the serenity and harmony of its design. Its most characteristic visual features are the chair back's distinctive corner angle, shoulder groove and the upholstered armrests.
