Fritz Hansen

China Chair


The China Chair, designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1944, draws inspiration from the timeless aesthetic of ancient Chinese design in the 17th and 18th centuries. This piece epitomizes Wegner's lifelong quest to understand the nature of wood and explore its possibilities. In his modern interpretation, he unfolds his talent as a wood craftsman and his flair for expressive and sculptural functionalism.

The China Chair fits the ethos that furniture should be beautiful from all angles as freestanding monuments to the inseparable relationship between handcrafted forms and fine, natural materials.
