Each with a stained beech frame with upholstered back and seat. The front and back legs joined by bowed glides allowing the chair to tilt and rock slightly.

"The work chair designed by Holger Jacobsen has glides shaped so that it is possible to tilt the chair back and forth while seated. The glides are cut out in a way so it is possible to keep the tilted position of the chair for a longer while. This was practical especially during the long intercontinental phone calls at the offices in the late 1940's and 1950's. The upholstered seat added to the comfort of the chair." - Text courtesy of Fritz Hansen
