The Round Chair designed in 1948 Featured in famous televised Kennedy and Nixon debate Available in oak or ash Lightly padded classic seat Designed by Wegner in the same period as the Hans J. Wegner Cowhorn Chair and the Hans J. Wegner Y Chair
Our DERLOOK Hans J. Wegner The Chair is a faithful reproduction of this famous iconic furniture design. Hans J. Wegner's The Chair was originally named 'The Round Chair'. But after being used to seat John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon in the first televised election debate in 1960, it became known as 'The Chair'. Our Hans J. Wegner The Chair has all the functional elegance and comfort of the original. The wooden frame is made from a choice of quality ash and has a gracefully arched backrest that supports the body. The seat is lightly padded with high quality classic leather, making it perfect for everyday use.
The story behind Hans J. Wegner The Chair
Designed in 1949, Hans J. Wegner referred to his creation as 'The Round One' due to the curved backrest. Modest and simple, the design is the very essence of traditional Danish wood and furniture design. In the 1950s, it was noticed by 'Interiors', an American magazine for design and architecture. They described it as 'the most beautiful chair in the world'. Legend has it that this was the catalyst that propelled Danish furniture design to compete at an international level. Among Wegner's iconic chair range you also find the Teddy Bear Chair, the Peacock Chair and the China Chair.
