Frits Henningsen was one of Denmark's most distinguished designers of the early twentieth century. Designed in 1954, the pared-back lines and fluid curves of the Signature Chair exemplify his uncompromising purist approach.
This supremely elegant design was one of the last pieces of furniture that Henningsen produced, with fewer than twenty chairs of this type initially manufactured. As a result, the original edition is highly sought after by collectors and fetches considerable sums on the rare occasions it comes up for auction.
Now reissued by Carl Hansen & Son, the Signature chair is for the first time available to a wider audience. Its restrained and timeless design ensures it will be perfectly placed in a range of interior settings.
The solid wood frame is available in oak with a soaped, clear lacquered, oiled, white oiled finish, or black lacquered finish. Also available in walnut with a lacquered or oiled finish. See downloadable sheet for details of Carl Hansen wood finishes.
Seat back is made of form-pressed veneer and flame-retardant cold foam CMHR.
The Signature chair may be upholstered in a variety of fabrics or leathers selected by Carl Hansen & Son. See the downloadable specification sheet for details of the relevant Kvadrat and Gabriel fabric collections.
Samples of the rull range of upholstery fabrics are available to view at our shop and showroom.
