OW124 Beak Chair in Walnut Oil by Ole Wanscher

$3,990per item

About

Ole Wanscher presented the OW124 Beak chair at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Furniture Exhibition in 1951. An elegant mark of Wanscher’s refined design and bold pushing of boundaries, the chair was also a testament to his masterful grasp of furniture-making. The Beak Chair’s distinctive look is thanks in part to the beak-like armrests that inspired its name. This unique design feature demands carefully selected materials and skilled craftsmanship, as do the upholstered seat and back. Showing Wanscher’s preference for slender dimensions and durable shapes, the design features slim, gently curving elements that seamlessly unite in an organic flow. Only the armrest cover caps remain visible: a functional and decorative detail similar to a bird's-eye. Dimensions: 28.7in D x 25.5in W x 31.1in H The lead image is for walnut oil is Sif 95 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.
