Wing Chair in Leather (Thor)

Designed by Hans J. Wegner for Carl Hansen & Son
The son of a shoemaker, Hans Wegner was trained as a cabinetmaker and architect. He studied at Copenhagen’s School of Arts and Crafts, which led to a job with Arne Jacobsen, designer of the Egg™ Chair, creating furniture for the new Århus City Hall. Wegner started his own design office, and in 1949, his light, sculptural forms caught the eye of the folks at Carl Hansen & Son. For the next 58 years, Wegner designed memorable, comfortable, stunning furniture for the Hansen company, which continues to produce his fully licensed works today. Regarded as the “chair-maker of chair-makers,” the Danish designer created more than 400 chairs in his lifetime. Although Wegner designed his Wing Chair in 1960, it wasn’t put into production until 2006 – debuting at the IMM Cologne furniture fair where it received a classic innovation award for its timeless appeal. With experience in cabinetry and architecture, Wegner had an intimate understanding of materials and joinery, plus a passion for creating chairs that deliver outstanding comfort. The “wings” of this chair provide superior support for your upper back, neck and head, while the roomy seat allows you to sit in a variety of positions. Made in Denmark.
