Hans J. Wegner has been referred to as the “master of chairs,” having designed more than 500 throughout his distinguished career. Trained as a cabinetmaker, Wegner possessed an expert understanding of the properties of natural wood, which is evident in enduring designs like the Sawbuck Chair (1952). Crafted from both solid walnut and oak, it’s finished in a clear lacquer that highlights the natural and contrasting characteristics of the different woods. This durable chair is assembled entirely from wood – with no metal hardware – and the pieces fit snugly together like an ingenious puzzle. The seat and back are upholstered in Kvadrat wool, adding enduring comfort to Wegner’s versatile and timeless chair, a standout among the hundreds. Made in Denmark.
