Circle Chair & Footstool by Hans Wegner in Oak & Cord, 1986, Denmark

The idea of making a chair based on the most simple and elegant shape of them all, the circle, remained a distant dream until Hans J. Wegner eventually completed the design at the age of 72.

This bright sparkle, this tickling thought, matured over a lifetime and became one of his most visionary projects, posing great challenges for PP Møbler’s workshop as its construction would push the limits of the possible.

One of the many appealing features of the Circle Chair is the fact that despite the size and comfort it is light and transparent, very practical and easy to move around.

The Circle Chair definitely elevates Wegner into the exclusive league of artists who performed consistently at a very high level throughout a long life.
