China chair by Hans Wegner for Fritz Hansen.

The China Chair was designed by Hans Wegner in 1944, who found inspiration for this timeless classic in Chinese chairs from the 17th and 18th Centuries. The China Chair is a perfect example of his lifelong quest to understand the nature of wood and explore its possibilities. In Wegner’s modern interpretation of ancient Chinese chairs, he unfolds his talent as a wood craftsman along with his flair for expressive and sculptural functionalism.
