Trends come and go, and the hand chair first became popular in the 1960s when Pedro Friedeberg designed it and hired Jose Gonzalez to carve it from mahogany. As its name suggests, the hand chair has a palm of a hand as the seat with fingers pointed upwards as the back support.
Depending on the style and vibe you’re going for in your home, you can choose from a wide variety of hand chairs like vinyl, plastic, concrete, wood, and more. The hand chair can function as decor, furniture, or a work of art in any room of your house, even outdoors.
Prices for the hand chair will differ depending on who’s selling it, the size, and quality. If you’re looking for cheaper options, you might find some at Target, but if you’re looking for a Friedeberg original creation, they sell for $20,000 to $30,000 through online auctions and vintage stores.
