FH429 Signature Chair in Oiled Oak by Frits Henningsen

$5,295per item

About

The FH429 Signature chair was designed by Frits Henningsen, a cabinetmaker who held his profession to very high standards. Henningsen always manufactured his own designs and often began by creating a small model – in this case, using modeling clay and toothpicks. The frame was then made in his Copenhagen workshop, undergoing months of testing and adjustments before Henningsen was content. After the lounge chair was completed in 1954, fewer than 20 pieces were produced. Carl Hansen & Søn reintroduced the design in 2015. The simplicity of Henningsen’s work increased over the years. The Signature chair becoming his purest, most pared-down design. His interest in achieving comfort and elegance through the use of graceful, curved lines is apparent in this final project. Its soft, inviting shapes and floating armrests create a simple, organic form that calls for quiet contemplation. Dimensions: 35in D x 26.4in W x 40.2in H The lead image is for oiled oak is Sif 98 leather.

About The Maker

At Carl Hansen & Søn, we believe that iconic design is a combination of simplicity, aesthetics and functionality brought to life through skillful work with the highest quality materials. For over 100 years, we have specialized in providing the outstanding furniture craftsmanship that brings visionary design concepts to life. Through the years, Carl Hansen & Søn has maintained a strong focus on preserving Danish design classics while continuing to expand out collection to represent influential new designers. Our goal: to gather the best, most iconic modern furniture under one roof. Carl Hansen & Søn’s evolution has been deeply influenced by our long-term relationship with one of the greatest designers of all time: Hans J. Wegner. The creative partnership began in 1949, when Wegner developed a successful furniture series exclusively for Carl Hansen & Søn, which included the now-iconic CH24 Wishbone Chair. We also produce important works by the renowned mid-century Danish masters such as Wegner, Børge Mogensen, Ole Wanscher, Frits Henningsen, Arne Jacobsen, Kaare Klint, and Poul Kjæarholm, and contemporary designers such as Tadao Ando, EOOS and Brad Ascalon.
