Ole Wanscher designed the Beak Chair in 1951.
The chair was shown the same year at the Cabinetmakers’ Guild Exhibition.
The chair is a good example of Ole Wanscher’s sculptural design.
The quite special armrests, reminiscent of a beak, has given inspiration to the chair’s name: Beak Chair.
It is an exclusive piece of furniture with a high level of craftsmanship.
The soft curving shape of the chair is created without visible transitions.
Only the covers on the side of the armrests are visible.
It’s a nice functional and decorative detail reminiscent of a bird’s eye.
In collaboration with Ole Wanscher’s descendants, Carl Hansen & Son has recreated the Beak Chair after the original drawings.
The Beak Chair is manufactured in oak, black painted oak or walnut with upholstery in fabric or leather.
