A classic design for work or relaxation

When Carl Hansen & Søn put the Elbow Chair by Hans J. Wegner into production for the first time in 2005, it quickly established its position as a modern classic, winning the ICFF Editors’ Award in New York the same year. The Elbow Chair’s characteristic steam-bent backrest, crafted from a single piece of solid wood, provides arm and lower back support and enables a variety of seating positions. The shape of the backrest is mirrored in the uniquely constructed upholstered seat, which is crafted from curved, compression-molded veneer and appears to float above the legs.

Hans J. Wegner

Designer
Among Danish furniture designers, Hans J. Wegner is considered one of the most creative, innovative and prolific. Often referred to as the master of the chair, Wegner designed more than 500 chairs in his lifetime – many of them considered masterpieces. He is probably best known for his iconic Wishbone Chair which has been in continuous production since 1950. The core of Wegner’s legacy is his focus on bringing the inner workings – the soul – of the furniture to the exterior, where the simplicity and functionality can be appreciated.
