GE240S Cigar Footstool

Hans J. Wegner 1955

Designed by Hans J. Wegner, one of the most important and influential designers in history and commonly credited as a driving force in the mid-century Danish modern movement.

Designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1959 and manufactured by our friends at Getama, the Cigar Footstool perfectly accompanies the Cigar Chair, a classic reading chair that gets its name from its softly rounded frame. Available in soaped oak or oiled walnut, cushions can be upholstered in various fabrics or leathers.


Hans J. Wegner

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’.


“A chair is to have no backside. It should be beautiful from all sides and angles.”

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.
