Originally designed in 1954 by Frits Henningsen by creating a small model from clay and toothpicks, the FH429 Signature Chair in oiled walnut and tan leather was reintroduced by Carl Hansen & Søn in 2015.
A pure and remarkably pared-down design, the Signature Chair was cleverly designed for optimal comfort with a simple, organic form. Produced by esteemed manufacturers Carl Hansen & Søn in Denmark, the curved armrests are beautifully crafted from uniquely grained oiled walnut whilst the seat itself is upholstered in premium Sif leather. Sif is a full-grain, pure aniline ox hide, crafted only from the finest pelts, which offers an inimitable suppleness with no coatings or sealants applied.
A modern lounge chair that offers great comfort and stability, the FH429 Signature Chair references the simple lines of the 1950s and 1960s, complementing both contemporary and vintage-inspired interiors.
Renowned as one of Denmark’s greatest furniture designers, Frits Henningsen’s functional approach to design helped to create timeless pieces that remain relevant today. Drawing inspiration from furniture from the French Empire, the rococo movement, and the British 17th-century, Henningsen’s work is rooted in classic craftsmanship.
