Ole Wanscher designed the Colonial Chair in 1959.
The chair remains one of his best-known designs and is included in the Colonial Series along with the sofa and coffee table, which came 15 years later.
Despite its slim design, the Colonial Chair is exceptionally stable and has a robust construction.
Now the textile specialist Kvadrat has reinterpreted the Colonial Series in collaboration with Carl Hansen.
The collaboration combines the durable design of the Colonial Series with the sustainable Re-wool upholstering.
Re-wool is a sturdy furniture fabric that contains 45% recycled residues from the spinning process.
The new material, designed by Margrethe Odgaard, has a great depth of colour and a dynamic structure.
It is a successful meeting between tradition and renewal.
Colonial x Re-wool is sold exclusively at Carl Hansen & Son flagship store or on-line.
