hans wegner ch23 chair

by Hans Wegner, from Carl Hansen & Son

hans wegner ch23 chair

Design Hans Wegner, 1950
Hardwood, paper cord seat
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son

The CH23 dining chair is an early example of Hans J. Wegner's unique style and insightful craftsmanship, and contains many well-known Wegner details - for example, the elegantly shaped cruciform caps on the backrest and the special double-woven seat.

Wegner was a master in making complex designs appear simple, and despite the CH23 chair's richness in unique detail, its appearance is ultimately light and simple. The chair has no armrests, which makes it practical for fitting around the table, even in small rooms. Thanks to its ingenious design and organic form, it is also unsurpassed for comfort.

Hans J Wegner trained as a cabinet-maker before attending the Copenhagen School of Arts and Crafts, where he later lectured from 1946 to 1953. From 1938 to 1942, he worked as a furniture designer in Arne Jacobsen and Erik Moller´s architectural practice. In 1943, he set up his own office in Gentofte and collaborated with Borge Mogensen in the design of an apartment shown at the 1946 Cabinetmakers' Exhibition in Copenhagen. Throughout his long career, he has designed furniture extensively for Johannes Hansen and Fritz Hansen. The Royal Society of Arts, London made him an 'Honorary Royal Designers for Industry' in 1959.
