The Windsor chair by Frits Henningsen, relaunched by Carl Hansen & Søn
Carl Hansen & Søn has relaunched the Windsor chair by Danish architect Frits Henningsen. The common spindle back chair was beforehand in generation until eventually 2003 and this calendar year has been specified a refresh with a new snug seat cushion.
After completing his cabinetmaker apprenticeship in Denmark, Henningsen traveled all over Europe and took inspiration from French household furniture, Rococo design and 17th century British furniture. Henningsen’s elegant, beautifully crafted Windsor Chair is produced of strong oak with a high, sculptural back again produced of two steam-bent pieces. The carpentry calls for the capabilities of a extremely knowledgeable joiner – the 14 somewhat sloping spindles all have distinct angles and are tightened jointly at the similar time without the need for glue. The chair is then sanded and finished by hand.
A common that can fit in both of those regular and present-day homes.

Rey selection by Bruno Rey for Dietiker, in collaboration with HAY
When I initial heard information of this collaboration, my 1st thought was – I have to have this chair in my everyday living. I just like the tactile curved shape of the back. To start with intended by Bruno Rey for Dietiker in 1971, this retro chair has been set back into distribution by Danish model HAY and I’m guaranteed it’s heading to be popular.
Swiss designer Rey was acknowledged for his love of organic and natural sorts and was reported to be impressed by the Thonet bentwood chair when he began experimenting with wooden. For the Rey chair, he made a self-supporting spherical seat that attaches to the legs by using an impressive, screw-much less, wooden-to-steel relationship. This was to begin with handmade utilizing sand casting but by the late Eighties, aluminium stress die casting meant that the full process could be performed by equipment and the chair could be mass generated.
For the copy, HAY have modified the seat peak somewhat to go well with up to date necessities, and introduced a series of bold new colours (I specifically like the delicate inexperienced). The assortment also involves a stackable stool, a bar stool, a round espresso table and eating table.
