GE240 – Arm-chair by Hans Wegner – Cod. 1153

GE240 Arm-chair, designed in 1955 by Hans Wegner for Getama ( Denmark )
The ‘cigar-shaped’ carved armrests emphasise the natural beauty of the wood grain.
Original upholstery, woven in Hallingdal wool by Kvadrat .

This chair is one of the Danish architect’s best known designs, and is known as the ‘Cigar-chair’, due to the shape of the tapered armrests and legs.
The supporting structure of the chair is clearly derived from the sawbuck chair that Wegner designed for Johannes Hansen in 1951.
