The Church Chair (1956) is a versatile chair designed by architect and designer Vilhelm Wohlert and manufactured by Stellar Works. Simple, elegant and supremely functional, the Church chair showcases the Danish designer’s less-is-more ethos and talent for turning the structural into the sculptural. The revitalisation of the design by Stellar Works rightly restores the Church chair's position as a mid-century design masterpiece. The Church Chair is a versatile all-purpose chair appropriate for both domestic and commercial uses, especially in dining rooms and restaurants.
The chair comes in solid walnut or oak wood in multiple finishes, with the seat made with paper cord. Please refer to the Materials and Finishes Guide for more information on materials and make your selection of wood type in the Wood Finishes option above. Please contact us if you have any further questions on options and finishes.
The chair is part of the Wohlert Collection of iconic designs by Vilhelm Wohlert reissued by Stellar Works which also include armchairs, stools and tables.
A prolific architect and designer, Vilhelm Wohlert (1920–2007) trained, and later taught, at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. Alongside his work designing and restoring churches and royal castles, he is especially celebrated for the design of the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humbaek, Denmark. Wohlert’s furniture and lighting have become design icons, thanks to the way they often employ structural elements to create sculptural effects.
