Wings of Desire: A Modern Classic Resurrected

Julie Carlson October 24, 2013

Inspired by classic British club furniture, Danish designer Frits Henningsen created a modern interpretation of the wingback with his swoopy Heritage Chair. Formerly only available via high-end midcentury dealers, it’s back in production and on offer at Carl Hansen in fabric or leather.

Above: The ghostly form of the Heritage Chair in profile. Watch the strangely mesmerizing video of the chair being made at Carl Hansen.

Above: The chair has a beechwood frame and is available in a range of fabrics.

Above: Subtly regal, the Heritage chair adds an Audrey Hepburn-like flourish to a room.
