Carl Hansen & Søn



The Folding Chair has been synonymous with flexible furniture craftsmanship since the first prototype was launched in 1932.

Designed by Mogens Koch.


The Folding Chair is Mogens Koch's vision for a piece of furniture that is easy to transport, yet also aesthetically pleasing, whether it is placed at the dining table or on the patio. What makes the design unique is that the chair stabilizes itself automatically when sitting in it, ensuring great seating comfort. The chair is very easy to store due to its simple folding mechanism, with the mounted brass rings providing a smooth folding movement.

The Folding Chair is available in oil-treated beech or mahogany. The seat and backrest are available in bleached canvas (100% linnen) or leather in selected colors. The armrests are available in either saddle leather or as sewn armrest made in leather maching the seat and back. Designed by Mogens Koch in 1932.
