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 produce 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.
For Wegner, a chair was a work of art conceived to support the human body. In all his designs, it's easy to recognize his fondness for form and function, where ergonomics plays a primary role. Freedom of movement was also key for Wegner, who made every effort to ensure comfort, achieved by his precise engineering of the elements that contribute to the graceful rocking movement.
The natural paper cord forming the seat adds support while creating a subtle contrast in texture to the smooth wooden structure.
