Danish designer, Henrik Tengler approached Ivan Hansen and Henrik Sørensen in the early 90's to pitch his iconic design "Chairman." It was a rocky, but ultimately successful, start to Tengler's time as a designer for Hansen Sørensen, now known as Onecollection. This bench is one of many items Tengler designed while he worked there, and has the original manufacturer's label.
We love how Danish architects John Lassen and Joanna Tench incorporated a vintage Tengler Chairman piece into their summer home, as seen in these photos from Dwell Magazine. The union of the warm wood, with the clean white space and a touch of steel hardware detail in various places gives the space a light, cozy yet modern feel.
Tengler's White Leather Bench would complement a similar space beautifully!
