The Circle Chair shows that Wegner was able to maintain his enthusiasm and innovative spirit despite an already long career. The idea of making a chair based on the most simple and elegant shape of them all, the circle, remained a distant dream until Hans J. Wegner eventually completed the design at the age of 72. This bright sparkle, this tickling thought, matured over a lifetime and became one of his most visionary projects, posing great challenges for PP Mbler's workshop as its construction would push the limits of the possible. It was necessary for master of crafts Sren Holst Pedersen and master journeyman Henry Fisker to develop a special machine for manufacturing it in wood - which Wegner himself actually did not think was even possible.
Consequently the Circle Chair turned out to be one of Wegner's most characteristic and aesthetic designs while still offering great comfort and flexibility. Despite its size, the Circle Chair is light, practical, and easy to move around.
The Circle Chair elevates Wegner into the exclusive league of artists who maintained their consistency and innovation throughout their career.
