Item code: 18V12-789

Vintage Hans J. Wegner (1914-2007) JH-503 “The Round Chair” in solid mahogany.
Perhaps the most famous Danish chair of all time, this chair was the culmination of Wegner’s life work.

Designed in 1949, Hans Wegner presented this chair at the 23rd edition (1949) of the annual Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Exhibition at Design Museum Denmark.

Nicknamed “The Chair” by the Americans, Wegner in his modesty, always referred to it as the “Round One.”

We have fully restored the frame in an oil finish, with newly padded seat covered in new aniline leather.

Marked and made by master cabinetmaker Johannes Hansen.

Denmark, 1950s - 1960s

W. 63 D. 52 H. 75 cm.
Seat height. 44 cm.
