Designed & manufactured by Frits Henningsen (1889 - 1965)

Copenhagen, circa 1940's

The chair clearly owes its parentage to Henningsen's masterpiece 'Wingback' chair designed in 1935. The same elongated, sinuous, carved legs with their rich patina support the precisely upholstered seat and back with its nipped in waist and gently flaring back.

Frits Henningsen is one of the most admired furniture designers of the 20th century and was a significant figure in Danish design. Whilst many of his peers turned to using straighter lines in their work, Henningsen stressed the importance of achieving comfort and elegance.
