The Cesca Chair is made from an Austrian Oak, created by Hans J. Wegner in 1955. It’s a light and comfortable chair with soft lines and padded seat and back cushions upholstered with a foam layer to make the material medium-hard.
The wood used in this chair was specifically selected for its compatibility with softer woods, such as Hop Hornbeam which make up the intricately carved arms of this piece. In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, these contrasting woods create an enjoyable tactile experience for both the eye and hand that enhances the beauty of Wegner’s design while also balancing comfort through high density foam padding on seat and back cushions covered in woven fabric over natural natural wool
The Cesca Chair is made of solid beechwood. It has a fantastic ergonomic design for amazing comfort which was Bertrand’s main concern with the chair. The shell-shaped seat and backrest are somewhat curvilinear, but not nearly as much as some other oversized chairs of the day. Plus, it’s really easy to clean!
