Information on the chair A review of the 1957 Copenhagen Cabinet Maker’s Guild Exhibition describes Wanscher’s stool as follows: “At this year’s exhibition Professor Ole Wanscher presents a copy of an Egyptian folding chair from the year 1500 BC. He found the measurements in 1934 on a chair at the Egyptological museum in Berlin. It is a commander’s chair which followed the king, and wherever it was set up became the seat of political power. The folding chair is still used, for example, by the Roman Catholic Church as a bishop’s seat on special occasions. Ole Wanscher has produced a somewhat larger version of the commander’s chair so that anyone may have one in the house if he so desires. This little Egyptian is a marvelous piece of applied art, and its sculptural qualities alone will make it very decorative in a room. The apprentice who worked on the chair in 1957 has had the opportunity of being inspired by the delight of the wood just like his predecessor in the trade 3,500 years ago.”
