Great luxury sometimes comes in small packages. This is one of Wegner’s smallest chairs, but it is an amazing work of art. Designed in 1952 the Cow Horn Chair is the immediate follow up on the breakthrough of Wegner’s career, pp501/pp503 Round Chair. The continuity in shape and philosophy is obvious but designed for a different purpose, Wegner created a smaller chair that would easily fit underneath the table thus making it more suitable for the dining set.
Wanting to pay homage to the breathtaking beauty of wood manually carved into organic shapes, Wegner decided to make a compact chair with back and armrests formed by two large pieces of solid wood joined in the middle. The joint needs to be aligned with the grains of the wood with some kind of tenon and could be dowelled but in this case Wegner decided that instead of hiding the unavoidable joint he would rather enhance it and make it a decorative feature of the design.
