arne jacobsen's tongue chair re-issued by HOWE

arne jacobsen is one of the most famous and most loved danish creatives of the past. known for his marvelous architectural works, legendary furniture pieces, and versatile designs, he has truly left his mark on the industry. the ‘tongue chair’ is a classic piece by jacobsen, but somehow it got lost with the rising popularity of his earlier ‘ant chair’.  featuring a characteristic organic wave-form in the tongue-shaped seat, complemented with highly sculptural, splayed legs, danish manufacturer HOWE is re-issuing the design. maintaining all of the sculptural qualities of the original model, the ‘tongue chair’ is available in beech, oak and walnut veneers, as well as in stained versions in black, white and teak. the ‘tongue chair’ is also available in full upholstery in both fabrics and leather – the color palette ranges from light pink to cognac. the legs come in chrome or in black or white powder coating.
