Carbon fiber and steel. The chair looks industrial, and the materials support this impression. Almost the opposite of what we normally associate with craft. But make no mistake: the Wire Chair is an excellent demonstration of quality craftsmanship, designed by architect Dan Svarth and produced by the furniture brand A. Petersen in Copenhagen. With a carefully welded frame, seat and back in woven carbon fibre, which in one flow follows the shape of the body when you sit in the chair.

Dan Svarth made the first prototype of this chair in 1972, while he was teaching at the School of Architecture in Copenhagen and at the same time working together with the renowned Danish architect and designer, Poul Kjærholm.
Svarth made the prototype himself and bent ordinary water pipes for the frame. But the challenge then was that the type of wire available at the time was not stable enough for long-term use. Today we have the advantage of durable carbon fiber.
Mikkel Kjærholm has welded the tubes on the Wire Chair and the carbon fiber weaving is made at the A. Petersen workshop in Copenhagen. A. Petersen produces exclusive furniture and has as one of its aims to respectfully renew the Danish design tradition and bring it into the 21st century in collaboration with some of the best designers and craftsmen of the time. All of the brand's furniture is developed and produced in Denmark.
