With his love of natural materials and his deep understanding of the need for furniture to be functional as well as beautiful, Hans J. (1914-) made mid-century Danish design popular on an international scale. He began his career as a cabinetmaker in 1931 and subsequently entered the Copenhagen School of Arts & Crafts. After receiving his architectural degree in 1938, he worked as a designer in Arne 's architectural office before establishing his own office in 1943 where he used his design skills to create more than 500 different chair designs. His international breakthrough and greatest sales success came in 1949 when he designed the Round chair. The American magazine Interiors featured The chair on the cover and referred to it as "the world's most beautiful chair". The chair rose to stardom when used in the televised presidential debates between Nixon and Kennedy in 1960 and has since been known simply as "The chair". The reproduction of the Hans J. The chair upholds the aesthetics and modern design. It is made out of wood with leatherette seating pad.
