MSH partnership, all words are my own and I only ever work with brands I love and think you will too.
So, who was Ole Wanscher? Having studied under Kaare Klint, Wanscher was integral to the aesthetic and functionality of modern Danish design. In 1958 the Danish newspaper Politiken wrote:
“Owning a Wanscher chair is an adventure every day, and will be so even several hundred years from now, for this is how long it lasts”.
Wanscher had a passion for sleek, refined shapes and the sculptured T-Chair is instantly recognisable by it’s T-Shaped backrest and exquisite carpentry.
A loyal tribute to the original design, Carl Hansen & Søn have maintained the distinctive expression and beautiful craftsmanship while adjusting the height to provide optimum ergonomics for today’s world (we’re a lot taller today than we were in the 1950s!).
One of the distinct features of the chair is the T-shaped backrest which smoothly merges with the back legs, giving it a cool three-legged appearance.
Over the past week, I’ve discovered the chair works equally well as an individual piece as it does an entire set, hence why I hogged one all to myself and placed it by my side of the bed!
Anyway I digress! One of the things I love most about the T-Chair is how it embodies both classic and modern lines. Take a closer look (under my spotty top!!) and you’ll notice the smooth joints – the result of careful processing and many, many carpentry hours.
Isn’t it fantastic? I can totally see how this chair could live on for hundreds of years – both in terms of quality and its timeless design.
Could you imagine having a set of these in your home?
I’m already dreading the day they’re being collected. Maybe I should invest in my own set!
Right folks, that’s it from me this week. I’m all wrapped up in knits at my desk today while the snow falls silently outside. It’s pretty – but cold here in Sweden! BRRRR!
Stay warm and have a fabulous, festive weekend!
