FH429 Signature Chair
Designed by Frits Henningsen.
The FH429 Signature Chair was designed by Frits Henningsen, a cabinetmaker who held his profession to very high standards. Henningsen always manufactured his own designs and often began by creating a small model – in this case, using modeling clay and toothpicks. The frame was then made in his Copenhagen workshop, undergoing months of testing and adjustments before Henningsen was content.
After the lounge chair was completed in 1954, fewer than 20 pieces were produced. Carl Hansen & Søn reintroduced the design in 2015. The matching FH430 footstool is available separately for added comfort.
Frame available in Oak or Walnut in a variety of finishes.
**Oak has a clearly visible wood structure when painted and is available only in Black.
Upholstery made to order in a wide choice of leather types and colours (see a list under ‘Details’).
Carl Hansen & Søn use premium quality Ash, beech, mahogany, oak, teak, and walnut. Finishes available are Soap, clear lacquer, oil, white oil, or smoked oil.
Wood is a natural material and may vary depending on the environment - walnut and teak can vary considerably in tone and pattern even within the same log.
