Made by Carl Hansen & Søn
The MG501 Cuba Chair by Morten Gøttler is one of Carl Hansen & Søn's most beloved chairs. It features a folding, solid oak frame, with the cotton girths around the frame forming a comfortable seat and back. Enthusiasts will notice the high quality hardware and minimal detailing at the intersection of the seat and back.
The chair has all the elegance of a sculpture with its natural materials, clean cotton webbing and evident craftsmanship. In short, it beautifully embodies the concept of complex simplicity.
Born in Copenhagen in 1944 and originally trained in shipping, Morten Gøttler became a self-taught designer and architect known for his exceptional understanding of wood. He opened his own studio in 1972 and has worked in many genres, including furniture design, domestic art, packaging, toys, graphics and lighting. Gøttler’s clean, easy aesthetic is characterized by well-thought-out form, exquisite comfort, and close attention to detail — all brought to life using high-quality materials.
