Carl Hansen & Søn OW58 | T-Chair Leather Group Loke A
Ole Wanscher’s deep respect for materials, craftsmanship and function come to the fore on the OW58 T-Chair, relaunched in a loyal tribute to his original design. The distinctive expression of Danish designer Ole Wanscher’s OW58 T-Chair challenges the art of the possible without compromising craftsmanship or comfort. Adjusted only in height to provide optimum ergonomics for today’s design enthusiasts who have grown taller since 1958, the sculptural piece embodies both classic and modern lines to give the chair a light and elegant appearance. The result of careful processing and many carpentry hours to achieve smooth transitions in the sustainable wood joints, the chair’s most striking detail is the T-shaped backrest which merges seamlessly with the tightly placed back legs, giving the chair a three-legged appearance. Despite its light expression, the T-Chair has a wide, upholstered seat that provides excellent comfort, making it ideal for dining use.
