Hans Wegner influenced Bojne chair from Ikea

Bojne

We recently showed you Ikea's Stockholm floor lamp, which looked like it had been influenced by the work of Arne Jacobsen. Their Bojne chair also looks like it has taken its cue from classic Danish design, this time the work of Hans Wegner. 

Specifically, the distinctive shape of the chair back is reminiscent of Wegner's CH20 design for Carl Hansen & Son, also known as the Elbow chair. That chair was designed back in 1956 but only went into production a couple of years ago.


The Ikea chair is made from beech, and while it misses out on some of the organic, smooth curves of the original design, it's typically reasonably priced. While an Elbow chair will set you back over £400, this Ikea chair costs only £49.
