Ole Wanscher's folding chair exudes dignity and power.

The design has been in and out of production over its 55-year history, but is now firmly back in production with Danish manufacturers Carl Hansen & Son.

Lightweight but sturdy, a saddle-leather seat is supported by a folding, solid wood frame. When in use, the chair measure just 22" w. x 12" d. x 16" h, making it perfect for small space living. The seat, which is available in black cognac and natural butt leather, neatly folds down into the frame for convenient storage.
