The OW124 Beak Chair created by Ole Wanscher was introduced in 1951. It is a splendid example of the designer’s unique ability to add sculptural dimension to his furniture.

Ole Wanscher presented the OW124 Beak Chair at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Furniture Exhibition in 1951. An elegant mark of Wanscher’s refined design and bold pushing of boundaries, the chair was also a testament to his masterful grasp of furniture-making.

The Beak Chair’s distinctive look is thanks in part to the beak-like armrests that inspired its name. This unique design feature demands carefully selected materials and skilled craftsmanship, as do the upholstered seat and back.

Showing Wanscher’s preference for slender dimensions and durable shapes, the design features slim, gently curving elements that seamlessly unite in an organic flow. Only the armrest cover caps remain visible: a functional and decorative detail similar to a bird’s eye.

The Beak Chair, OW124, is available in oak and walnut with upholstery in either leather or fabric, which can be mixed and matched to suit both modern and classic interiors.
