ow124 beak chair

Design Ole Wanscher, 1951
Solid wood, flame retardant cold foam, upholstery
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son

With its expressive silhouette and eye-catching details, the Beak Chair, OW124, exemplifies Ole Wanscher's commitment to continually experimenting with design.

Ole Wanscher's Beak Chair was designed in 1951 and represents his outstanding sense of craftsmanship and design. Details such as the distinctive beak-like armrests that inspired the chair's nickname demand exquisite materials and exemplary craftsmanship.

Wanscher's sense for subtle detailing is also expressed in the discreet cover caps on the side of the armrests, reminiscent of a bird's eye. The lounge chair's soft, curved elements seamlessly join one another in a light, organic flow.

The Beak Chair, OW124, is available in oak and walnut with upholstery in either leather or fabric, which can be mixed and matched to suit both modern and classic interiors. The cover cap in the armrests always comes in contrast wood (oak or walnut). Oak painted black has a matching black cover cap.

OW124: 31.1" h | 28.7" d | 25.5" w | seat: 15.7" h | arms: 31.1" h

A workshop in Odense, Denmark in 1908, was the birthplace of the Carl Hansen company. With a fast reputation for quality work, Carl Hansen confidently took on large projects like dining room sets and bedroom suites. However, Hansen eventually learned to capitalize on scaled-back versions of his popular sellers, realizing that their strongest asset was its hand craftsmanship and rationality. Carl Hansen invited Hans Wegner to create designs in 1949, launching a mutually beneficial relationship bringing success to the company and exposure to the young Wegner. Wegner was still relatively unknown, but soon gained wide acclaim that continues to today.
