FH429 Signature chair, 1954

FH429 Signature Chair by Frits Henningsen for Carl Hansen + Son.

Frits Henningsen was one of Denmark's most distinguished designers of the early twentieth century. Designed in 1954, the pared-back lines and fluid curves of the Signature Chair exemplify his uncompromising purist approach.

This supremely elegant design was one of the last pieces of furniture that Henningsen produced, with fewer than twenty chairs of this type initially manufactured. As a result, the original edition is highly sought after by collectors and fetches considerable sums on the rare occasions it comes up for auction.

Now reissued by Carl Hansen & Son, the Signature chair is for the first time available to a wider audience. Its restrained and timeless design ensures it will be perfectly placed in a range of interior settings.

Carl Hansen opened his furniture workshop in Odense, Denmark in 1908 and soon became known for the high quality of his work.

In the early days, the company produced bespoke furniture – including everything from dining room sets to bedroom suites. As the company grew and times changed, however, it gradually began to produce smaller series of its most popular pieces. This combination of hand craftsmanship and rational series production soon became the firm’s hallmark – and continues to set it apart today.
