Vintage single beech framed Heart chair with plywood teak seat. 1952 Hans Wegner design.
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 made of laminated plywood, a material favoured by Fritz Hansen the producers of the chair 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.
Condition. Very good with some signs of age and use.
The chair has the Fritz Hansen logo under its seat.
