The Form & Refine Shoemaker Chair™ - No.49 Low Stool has been made on the Danish island of Funen since 1936 and remains a classic example of exceptional carpentry and joinery. The seat is made from one solid piece that emphasises the wood grain, and makes each stool completely unique. Werner has refined and updated the design over the years, drawing on decades of Nordic design heritage to perfect the piece. The chair’s simple, minimalist aesthetic belies the technical skill and precision required to bring it to life. Also available in a larger size.
A family of renowned Danish woodturners, the Werners make the iconic Shoemaker chair from their workshop on the island of Funen.
The Gislev Drejerforretning joinery was founded in 1913 and has been presided over by three generations of the Werner family. Werner have worked tirelessly to renew and fine-tune their creations, emphasising simplicity and timelessness to create classic pieces that will stand the test of time.
