 the Circle Chair

 The Circle Chair (image above) by Danish designer Hans J. Wegner. The design is a laminated ring with stretched, wide-meshed net. To manufacture this chair it was necessary for master of crafts Søren Holst Pedersen and master journeyman Henry Fisker to develop a special machine for manufacturing it in wood ,which Wegner himself actually did not think was even possible. The Circle Chair was Wegner and PP Møbler's contribution to the SE Exhibition in 1986. And, as usual, the prototype was not completed before the very last moment, the morning of the show to be exact. 



This shape is good for parents and child ( as a photo) and I think good for couple, who sit very closely. Because the wide-mashed net stretched , if people sit on the chair long time,may be they do not feel pain .very clever and aesthetic design.
