ch33 dining chair with upholstered seat

Design Hans Wegner, 1957
Solid wood, veneer, cold foam, upholstery
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son

The CH33 dining chair expresses many typical aspects of Hans J. Wegner's best designs. It is a very light, graceful chair that functions as a dining chair or as a sculptural addition to almost any room. It offers great comfort and stability as a classic chair that references the simple lines of the 50s and 60s.

Every part of the Ch33 chair employs rounded, organic forms. The tapered legs and cross pieces are thickest where they need to support load-bearing joints, and gracefully become more slender as the design allows. The slightly splayed legs make for a very robust construction and visually signal the light chair's structural stability. The joints connecting the back legs to the backrest are visible classic examples of Hans J. Wegner's penchant for honest design that highlights good craftsmanship.

The CH33 seat and backrest are made from pressure-formed hardwood laminate. It comes in an all-wood version, or with upholstered seat in your choice of fabric or leather.

Note: the buttons on the seat & back are always the same wood as the frame.

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.
