Design Lover - Hans Wegner The Circle Chair

The Circle Chair

More likely known for "The Chair" used in the 1960 Kennedy Nixon debate (view here or below) Hans Wegner's portfolio contains more than 500 chair designs. The Circle Chair was one of Wegner's later designs. The flag halyard back was woven through the frame with a single piece of cord and a special machine for manufacturing it in wood was designed by master of crafts Søren Holst Pedersen and master journeyman Henry Fisker - a feat which Wegner himself didn't think was possible. Both The Chair and The Circle Chair were used to furnish the VIP lounge at the 2009 UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen.
