By Tadao Ando

The TA001T Dream Chair was designed by acclaimed Japanese architect, Tadao Ando for Carl Hansen & Søn in 2013 as a tribute to Hans J. Wegner. Ando wanted to capture the sculptural minimalism that defined Wegner’s work.

Sculptural minimalism in a chair

The TA001T Dream Chair by Tadao Ando sits at the intersection of art and design. The Dream Chair merges beauty and comfort as it invites relaxed reflection. True to Wegner’s mantra, the chair is designed to be enjoyed from all angles, its form as captivating when viewed from the front as from the sides and back. To create the necessary characteristics of a chair from the fewest possible parts, Ando and the cabinetmakers at Carl Hansen & Søn used three-dimensional veneer that can be curved along two axles during the molding process. Pushing the size and curvature of the veneer sheet beyond what was thought possible, Ando succeeded in creating a form that is dreamlike both in its construction and its soothing effect. The TA001T Dream Chair has a small, relaxing neck pillow in fabric or leather. The chair is also available with the frame upholstered, the TA001P Dream Chair.
