GE240 Cigar Chair

Hans J. Wegner 1955

Designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1955 and manufactured by our friends at Getama, the Cigar Chair epitomises Danish lounging.

This classic reading chair gets its name from its softly rounded frame, which is available in soaped oak or oiled walnut. Cushions can be upholstered in various fabrics or leathers.

Hans J. Wegner is considered one of the greatest furniture designers of the 20th century, creating more than 1000 designs throughout his career. Wegner’s designs have often been described as ‘iconic’, ‘timeless’ and ‘free from passing trends’.


"Imagine if you could design just one good chair in your lifetime - but that simply cannot be done."

Hans J. Wegner


The complicated organic shapes of our products are impossible, or certainly unpractical, to finish by using machines alone. Machines will never be able to sense the subtle nuances in each piece of wood and how to bring vitality through its shape.
