The Metropolitan Chair, notable particularly for its visually striking back, was a natural addition to the Carl Hansen & Son collection in 2014. Created by Danish designers Ejner Larsen and Aksel Bender Madsen in 1949, the chair embodies the qualities that also characterize Hans J. Wegner’s chairs: sculptural shapes and well-conceived proportions combined with superb craftsmanship. With the addition of the Metropolitan Chair, Carl Hansen & Son further fulfilled its vision of bringing the greatest furniture icons together under one roof.
Basing its work on the designers’ original drawings, Carl Hansen & Son now presents the Metropolitan Chair in a composition with a leather seat and veneer back – a combination of materials that gives the chair a significantly different visual expression with an even more compelling back.
A beautiful example of the lamination techniques of the day, the Metropolitan Chair earned its name after arousing great interest at the 1960 exhibition ‘The Arts of Denmark’ at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, which showcased the finest examples of Danish design and culture.
The Metropolitan Chair is available with an oak or walnut veneer back in various finishes and with a leather seat. Please see product downloads for leather samples.
