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 vintage spindle back again chair was formerly in creation right until 2003 and this calendar year has been provided a refresh with a new snug seat cushion.
Immediately after finishing his cabinetmaker apprenticeship in Denmark, Henningsen traveled about Europe and took inspiration from French furniture, Rococo design and 17th century British home furniture. Henningsen’s stylish, superbly crafted Windsor Chair is manufactured of stable oak with a higher, sculptural back again manufactured of two steam-bent sections. The carpentry requires the expertise of a hugely skilled joiner – the 14 a little bit sloping spindles all have unique angles and are tightened collectively at the very same time with out the need for glue. The chair is then sanded and finished by hand.
A typical that can in good shape in both of those standard and present-day residences.

Rey collection by Bruno Rey for Dietiker, in collaboration with HAY
When I initially listened to news of this collaboration, my 1st assumed was – I need this chair in my everyday living. I just really like the tactile curved condition of the back. Very first built by Bruno Rey for Dietiker in 1971, this retro chair has been place back into distribution by Danish model HAY and I’m positive it’s likely to be preferred.
Swiss designer Rey was recognised for his like of organic forms and was claimed to be impressed by the Thonet bentwood chair when he began experimenting with wood. For the Rey chair, he produced a self-supporting round seat that attaches to the legs by way of an innovative, screw-much less, wood-to-metal relationship. This was to begin with handmade working with sand casting but by the late Eighties, aluminium force die casting intended that the complete process could be performed by device and the chair could be mass developed.
For the copy, HAY have adjusted the seat height slightly to accommodate up to date specifications, and introduced a sequence of bold new colors (I notably like the gentle eco-friendly). The assortment also incorporates a stackable stool, a bar stool, a round coffee table and dining table.
