Ask a Dane to think of a rocking chair, and she will probably name this one. J16 is the undisputed classic among the many rocking chairs designed by renowned Danish designer Hans J. Wegner over the years.
The rocking chair was introduced by FDB Møbler in 1944 and has been in production ever since. In his chair design, Wegner stressed the importance of freedom of movement and ergonomics – as epitomised by the rocking chair. It is a much-cherished setting for reading, knitting and even nursing babies.
This chair, in beech, is vintage 1970s and is in excellent vintage condition with only minor age-appropriate signs if wear. There is what appears to be an original or early repair to the very top as shown. See photos. Marked under the arm with the FDB Møbler symbol.
