Effortless and timeless, Nicholai Wiig Hansen’s My Chair from 2013 is just about as close as you get to a new classic: a minimal chair in molded veneer, that moves gently with your body. The rounded corners and curved waist counterbalance the stringent design of the chair and give it a warm and welcoming feel.
My Chair is the result of designer Nicholai Wiig Hansen’s vision of the perfectly balanced chair: ”My aim was to design a chair with unequaled harmony and to try and come close to the indefinable quality that, in my opinion, lifts a design to another level. My Chair is a mixture of something familiar and something new, something neutral yet characterful, something present but not dominating, something simple as well as complex and something rigorous as well as curved. In other words, My Chair is a shell chair the way I think it should be.” Nicholai Wiig Hansen
With its minimalistic silhouette, My Chair is ideal for spaces that need a large number of seats, as the design can be multiplied without taking over the interior. Its stackable design gives flexibility, while the lounge chairs and barstool expand the opportunities to create coherent furnishings with the My Chair series.

Nicholai Wiig Hansen has had his own design studio since he was 26 years old. When Nicholai designs he uses himself as the target group. Proportions are extremely important in his work and details are not added from a decoration perspective but only if they serve some kind of purpose.
He is inspired by everything that surrounds him and especially art, food, nature and machinery. When Nicholai Wiig Hansen designs a new product, he always thinks the product to end in his head before sketching a single drawing. Everything from production to form and all the way to the end-user perspective.
