Hans Wegner heart chair | Fritz Hansen
Vintage Hans Wegner design Heart chair with beech frame & green leather seat.
A stunning chair designed by Hans Wegner in 1952 as a departure from his normal favoured material, solid timber.
The seat on the chair is laminated plywood, a material favoured by Fritz Hansen the producers of the chairs and something they were keen to get Wegner to use.
This turned out not the be the case and Wegner only designed the one series of dining chairs using this material before he went back to his favourite.
The chair is very comfortable for a 3-legged chair and has excellent back support from the gently curved back rest.
The seat has been upholstered in a green colour leather, providing a lovely contrast to the beech frame.
Condition. Very good with frame & leather upholsterey only showing some minor signs of age & use.
The chair has the Fritz Hansen logo under its seat.
