The Chinese Chair was designed in 1945 and became the quintessential modern outcome of Wegner’s studies of traditional Chinese chairs from the Ming Dynasty. The Chinese Chair became a cornerstone for Wegner, and the scarce, but still robust and functional geometry constituted the foundations for many later designs.

Bending a round piece of wood would appear to be simple, but because of the complexity of the bend, it requires advanced tools, specialised knowledge and experience to control the operation.
