CARL HANSEN & SØN | FH429 | Signature Chair | Designed 1954 | Frits Henningsen | Available in 10 weeks
The FH429 Signature Chair captures the essence of designer Frits Henningsen’s work with its eye-catching simplicity and graceful curves. A fitting last statement from one of Denmark’s greatest furniture designers.
A design both unique and pure
The FH429 Signature Chair was designed by Frits Henningsen, a cabinetmaker who held his profession to very high standards. Henningsen always manufactured his own designs and often began by creating a small model – in this case, using modeling clay and toothpicks. The frame was then made in his Copenhagen workshop, undergoing months of testing and adjustments before Henningsen was content. After the lounge chair was completed in 1954, fewer than 20 pieces were produced. Carl Hansen & Søn reintroduced the design in 2015.
The simplicity of Henningsen’s work increased over the years. The Signature Chair becoming his purest, most pared-down design. His interest in achieving comfort and elegance through the use of graceful, curved lines is apparent in this final project. Its soft, inviting shapes and floating armrests create a simple, organic form that calls for quiet contemplation.
The FH429 Signature Chair is available with the matching FH430 footstool for added comfort.
