Model 16000 - By Hans J. Wegner
Wegner J16 Rocking Chair
Hans J. Wegner showed an early interest in the rocking chair as a design object, and J16 was one of his first chairs ever put into production. The very first version was designed in 1944. After a process to make the chair easier to manufacture, the production could start. Wegner’s J16 has proved so viable that it has been in demand ever since it first came on the market.
At Fredericia, we strive to continue our heritage of purposeful and sustainable design, creating modern originals that encourage human well-being wherever people live, work or relax.
The paper cord seat offers a comfortable seat as a plastic-free alternative to polyurethane foams.
This furniture is made from solid wood that stores carbon and – if kept well – will get a beautiful patina. As needed, the surfaces can be sanded down and restored by skilled locals anywhere in the world.
The wood used for this furniture comes from responsibly managed FSC®-certified forests and other controlled sources.
