OW124 Beak Chair
Designed by Ole Wanscher. The OW124 Chair was designed in 1951 and presented at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers' Guild Furniture Exhibition the same year. The chair is an elegant example of Wanscher's sculptural design – thanks in part to the unique, beak-like armrests that inspired the chair's nickname: the Beak Chair.
