The WNG Chair’s rounded shape is puffed up with the upholstery, which enhances its childlike chubbiness, and invites you to sit, like a baby elephant tempting you to take a ride on its back. The wings that Magnus Læssøe Stephensen gave the stool became an element that continued to inspire not only his own designs in the coming years, but many other furniture designers.

The chair’s significant design was no doubt ahead of its time and truly a forerunner for years to come. In auction this chair has proven to be the ideal signature/statement chair for the small stylish studios of the modern metropolis. Now it is available in different upholstery, adding different finishes to the charming creature.
