Beech, Teak, and Leather Ax Chair

By Peter Hvidt and Orla Molgaard Neilsen for Fritz Hansen

Denmark, 1950s
Designed by Peter Hvidt and Orla Mølgaard Nielsen for Fritz Hansen in 1947, the Ax Chair has a gently curved bent beechwood frame with armrests that offers a supremely comfortable seat. Viewed in profile, the canted legs feature a contrasting teak core. This iteration of the class Danish modern chair is upholstered in caramel-colored leather. Label underneath.

We have three chairs available.
