J16 – still rocking


Fredericia celebrates 75th anniversary of Wegner’s rocking chair J16 with a new version in solid walnut.

The chairs are engraved with an anniversary text as well as Wegner’s signature.

Hans J. Wegner showed an early interest in the rocking chair as a type, and J16 became one of the very first chairs he put into production.

The original version of the chair was designed in 1944, but it had to go through a process that would make it easier to manufacture before it came into production with the help of Børge Mogensen.

With its clear design language, its wicker seat and its user-friendly balance, today Wegner’s rocking chair is considered the epitome of modern Danish furniture design.

Wegner’s J16 has since proved so viable that it has been in demand ever since it first came on the market.
