ch71 lounge chair

Design Hans Wegner, 1954
Solid wood, cold foam, upholstery
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son

"The chair is the thing that is closest to people, so it is important that its detailing is in order." -Hans Wegner

Carl Hansen & Søn is proud to present a lounge chair and sofa highlighting Hans J. Wegner's unique mastery of upholstery and furniture craftsmanship. Wegner possessed a rare ability to unite aesthetics, function and comfort - a talent clearly evident in the sculptural furniture set the world-famous Danish architect and designer first introduced in 1952. The CH71 lounge chair and CH72 two-seater sofa, which have not been in production since the late 1970s, now join the Carl Hansen & Søn collection.

Both the CH71 and CH72 are characterized by relatively small dimensions, a slim, comfortable, fully upholstered frame, and round, tapered legs in solid wood. The comfortable furniture set features loose cushions and upholstered armrests that are finished with elegant, rounded, solid wood handles.

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.
