Ole Wanscher designed the OW124 chair – or Beak chair – in 1951, and presented it the same year at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers' Guild Furniture Exhibition. The Beak chair is an example of Wanscher's craftsmanship as well as his sculptural and refined design. The originality of its beak-shaped armrests inspired the chair's nickname: Beak. Carl Hansen & Søn is now adding it to its collection of classic furniture.The OW124 has a solid wood structure available in a multitude of finishes, as well as cushions covered with fabric or leather.
Ole Wanscher (1903-1985) was a leading figure in the Scandinavian design movement. The qualities inherent in Ole Wanscher's furniture designs began to receive widespread international attention in the early 1990s. Today, all Ole Wanscher's pieces are desirable collector's items for enthusiasts around the world. His furniture exudes underplayed elegance and is it timeless, classic and thoroughly modern at one and the same time.
