Design: Hans Wegner’s return
Never Before Seen Hans Wegner Chair
The man behind the Papa and CH445 wing chairs designed a chair that hasn’t seen the light of day until now. Carl Hansen & Son is now launching a brand new chair designed by Hans Wegner over 50 years ago called Oculus. The chair was discovered when they found clay models and pictures of the chair in the Hans Wegner archives.
At one point, two prototypes were made but only one was found. There is something very Wegner-esque about the chair; its sculptural back and rounded silhouette seems to have his signature all over it. The chair has brushed steel legs and an upholstered body on a wood frame.
