The Swivel Chair is an uncompromising tool with comfort and ergonomics as overriding considerations. The top bar, made of solid wood and twisted like a propeller, is separated from the remaining frame and completed at the very limit of what is possible for full ergonomic advantage. Wegner was inspired by the critique of Consultant, Professor and Doctor of Medicine Egill Snorrason PhD, which was aimed at the entire Danish design and furniture trade for not paying attention to ergonomics. In his critique, however, Snorrason had pointed out that Wegner’s Cow Horn Chair was a good example of ergonomics done right, which was taken into consideration when designing the Swivel Chair.
Like numerous other Wegner designs, the Swivel Chair was to be produced by craftsmen with not a second thought for cost-minimising industrial production.
