The J16 Rocking Chair in solid walnut


As we are finalising the design of our extra work/living space at home with a dark wooden wall and custom made desk my eyes are drawn to everything with dark wood. The new version of the J16 Rocking Chair by Fredericia fits perfectly in this picture in my head.

As Fredericia celebrates the 75th anniversary of Hans J. Wegner’s J16 Rocking Chair the design house introduces the iconic chair in solid walnut. With its clear expression, seat in paper cord and well balanced design the rocking chair is today considered the epitome of Danish modern furniture.

With the new walnut version Fredericia brings back dark wood to Danish furniture, a colour scale which was synonymous with Danish design during the 1950s. At the same time walnut reaches out into the world where the species of wood is commonly used thanks to its distinct brown coloration, tight grain and excellent texture. As an exclusive anniversary edition the first series of chairs will be laser engraved with an anniversary text and Wegner’s signature.
