The internationally known and probably successful Wegner chair – “The Chair” from 1949 has already been produced in a limited edition – 100 pieces made of oak and 100 pieces made of ash. The chair with a woven seat and a sturdy solid wood frame is still very popular in the United States. In the past, this provoked the first overseas report on Danish design in American Interiors magazine and provided modern seating for John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon during the first televised election debate in 1960. The “Chair” inspired thousands of designers worldwide.
