1ST FH EDITION PAIR OF CHINA CHAIRS
BY HANS J. WEGNER Sold
The China chair was designed by Hans J. Wegner (1914-2007) in 1944. Inspired by the timeless aesthetic of ancient Chinese design in the 17th and 18th century, the China Chair epitomises his 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.
This particular variant of the China chair (Nr 4) was designed in 1943/44 and has only been produced for a limited number of years by Fritz Hansen in the 40’s. Later PP mobler produced a 2nd edition. Today Fritz Hansen offers an other variant.
Our chairs are the early Fritz Hansen production (ca 1946) in the original black paint and with an experimental seat cording. Rare collector’s items!
