10 Easy Pieces: The New Scandinavian Dining Chair

Julie Carlson December 16, 2015

Beyond the Wishbone and the Ant (insider shorthand for Hans Wegner’s CH-24 Chair and Arne Jacobsen’s Series 7 Chair). A new wave of designers is reimagining the classic midcentury Scandinavian dining chair. Here are 10 future classics we’re betting on.

Above: Designed by Stockholm architects Claesson Koivisto Rune for Swedese, the Rohsska Chair has a solid oak frame and a laminated oak seat and backrest; €825 ($930.55) from Finnish Design Shop. The chair is available in white, black, and lacquered oak.

Above: Nicholai Wiig Hansen reinterprets the classic shell chair with his molded plywood My Chair for Normann Copenhagen; on sale now for £131.04 ($196.55) from Nest UK (available in ash and black-stained ash).

Above: From Danish company Hay, About a Chair 12 is $270.

Above: Designed by Mika Tolvanen, the stackable Visu Chair for Muuto is $271. 

Above: The delicate yet sturdy three-legged Afteroom Chair, designed by Menu, is an instant classic; $300 from the Dwell Store.

Above: The Svenbertil Chair in birch from Ikea is $64.

Above: Designed by Jakob Wagner for Hay, the JW01 Chair features a flexible bent-veneer back and molded seat with a black powder-coated frame (also available in solid stainless steel); $365 from A+R Store in Los Angeles.

 

Above: The Gubi 1F Chair, designed by Poul Christiansen and Boris Berlin of Komplot Design, is made of molded plywood with a steel base. It’s $669 from the Danish Design Store.

Above: The Nap Chair, designed by Kasper Salto for Fritz Hansen, is $396 from Switch Modern.
