The Cigar Chair and Footstool designed by Hans Wegner in 1955. Hello beautiful.
This is seriously a Modernists wet dream. This chair was designed by Hans Wegner over 50 years ago and was only recently discovered (from clay models and pictures) in his archive. Two prototypes were made at the time but only one has been found. Carl Hansen & Son are now manufacturing this gorgeous chair called Oculus.
