Daniel Wenger’s furniture designs are functional art in leather and steel.
His Lotus Chair, from 1969, is his most well-known piece. The name Lotus comes from the ease of sitting in the chair in the yoga lotus position.
After a 30 year absence from furniture design and fabrication, Daniel returned to this work in 2009, now with his son Samuel, in Santa Cruz, California. A film of Daniel and Sam working together shows them in their workshop studio.

The designs that are offered for purchase may be viewed here and at Dering Hall on the web. They may also be viewed on display at Lawson-Fenning in Los Angeles, Spence & Lyda in Sydney, Australia and Original-In-Berlin, Berlin, Germany.
During the four days of October from the 24th through the 27th the designs will be at the WestEdge Design Fair in Santa Monica, California.
