The collection of chairs designed by Poul Henningsen in the 1930s are an impressive collection that showcase what can be done with the fewest materials to create something beautiful, functional, and imaginative. Henningsen’s approach to seating addresses the considerations of comfort and purpose, all while achieving aesthetic satisfaction. As some Danes like to exclaim, these are truly ‘delicious’ designs!
The PH Arm Chair is constructed of gentle curved lines which carefully support the back and arms, encouraging those using the chair to sit in an upright position. Soft leather wraps the seat and back, while the beautifully arced steel tube legs of the chair are strong and give ample leg room. A larger piece with a more architectural form, the PH Pope Chair's curves arise from just two long, dramatically bent steel tubes. Its unobtrusive legs are curved like the PH Arm Chair, and the seat is made with rich leather upholstery invites luxuriant relaxation.
Made from a single steel tube, Poul Henningsen's PH Lounge Chair invites repose and contemplation. Its supple leather cushioning conforms to the body, and provides ultimate comfort with a slight swinging effect in the back. The PH Chair, designed by Poul Henningsen in 1932, is a study in aesthetically perfected minimalism. The two fluid steel tubes that form the entire body touch in only one place, and its quality materials make this a design piece that will last for generations.
