TA001P - Dream Chair - Front Upholstered Designer: Tado Ando (2013) Manufactured by: Carl Hansen & Son
Danish craftsmanship meets Japanese design traditions in Tadao Ando's Dream Chair – a lounge chair inspired by the Japanese architect's desire to encourage people to take time to dream.The culmination of a close collaboration between Tadao Ando and the furniture experts at Carl Hansen & Søn, the Dream Chair is a tribute to Hans J. Wegner, the master of chair design. The project has pushed the boundaries of three-dimensional plywood, resulting in a sculptural and comfortable lounge chair created using a single material.
The chair's unusual floating expression naturally attracts attention. Its simple lines and exacting design are reminiscent of Tadao Ando's architecture, while the organic curves and expansive surfaces imbue the unique shape with ample space for personal reflection.
This upholstered version of the Dream Chair features a pillow and front available in a wide range of leathers or fabrics. Consult the Carl Hansen Wood & Fabric Guide for more info on materials (PDF). Please call for information and to order a custom chair: 800.688.0974.
