Design Hans Wegner, 1960
Solid wood top and base
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son

Hans J. Wegner (1914-2007) is one of the architects and designers who made Danish Design world famous. Wegner inscribes his name in the history of design first and foremost via a range of tables and chairs which are without predecessors in furniture design, yet stand in their own right as the most natural thing in the world, inevitable like new letters in the alphabet.

CH002 is a flexible table ideal for small spaces such as kitchens, small or apartments. It features hinged extension leaves at the table's ends that lift up easily to welcome additional guests. Wegner, with his unique understanding of wood, its possibilities and limitations, created many designs each with its own personality yet in a consistent language. The CH002 is a modern classic, a beautiful example of Wegner's work.

CH002 is available in Danish hardwoods in a variety of finish options. Each table top & base are made from solid wood. Table tops and extension leaves are available with rounded edges.

Hans Wegner

Hans Jørgensen Wegner’s (1914 - 2007) high-quality and thoughtful work contributed to the international popularity of mid-century Danish design. His style is often described as Organic Functionality, a modernist school with emphasis on functionality, arising primarily in Scandinavian countries. In his lifetime, he designed over 500 different chairs, over 100 of which were put into mass production, with many recognizable icons among them. Born to cobbler Peter M. Wegner, he worked as a child apprentice to Master cabinetmaker H. F. Stahlberg. With an affinity for wood, he attended the Danish School of Arts and Crafts and the Architectural Academy in Copenhagen. In 1936, he began studies at what is now The Danish Design School, with O. Mølgaard Nielsen as teacher.
A workshop in Odense, Denmark in 1908, was the birthplace of the Carl Hansen company. With a fast reputation for quality work, Carl Hansen confidently took on large projects like dining room sets and bedroom suites. However, Hansen eventually learned to capitalize on scaled-back versions of his popular sellers, realizing that their strongest asset was its hand craftsmanship and rationality. Carl Hansen invited Hans Wegner to create designs in 1949, launching a mutually beneficial relationship bringing success to the company and exposure to the young Wegner. Wegner was still relatively unknown, but soon gained wide acclaim that continues to today.
