Abel Sorenson for Knoll


One of my favorite chairs, the 703 WAC (Webbed Arm Chair), was designed by Abel Sorenson, and produced for only one year, 1945-46. Sorenson came to the United States in 1938 and worked in the offices of Oscar Stonorov and Louis Kahn before designing furniture for Hans and Florence Knoll.

  1. I was lucky enough to pick up 3 of these chairs a few years ago. At the time, I wasn't sure of the designer or manufacturer since the chairs had no tags or labels.
    Webbing needed replacing, but I could tell the chair was well designed and at $20 each I couldn't pass them up!
    It wasn't until many months after finding the chairs that I finally discovered what they were.
