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

Hans J. Wegner presented the CH30 chair in 1954 and the harmonious design embodies his ongoing journey to design the perfect chair.

The CH30 dining chair showcases Wegner's signature style: His organic design and exceptional craftsmanship can be seen in sophisticated details such as the cruciform cover caps on the curved, oval backrest that pitches back in line with the rear legs to achieve ultimate comfort. Combined with the wide, form-pressed padded seat it makes for a chair with a high level of comfort and functionality. As the highly comfortable chair can be tucked under a table, it only takes up limited space which makes it ideal for any modern context.

Having been out of production for a number of years, the chair is recreated in close collaboration with Hans J. Wegner's Design Studio. The elegant CH30 chair is produced according to his original working drawing - an extra two centimeters have been added in height to accommodate modern standards.

The CH30 is crafted in oak or walnut in various finishes and features a padded seat upholstered in either leather or fabric. Please note: Oak has a clearly visible wood structure when painted black. The cover cap on this model only comes in black. The cover cap on the backrest of the CH30p chair always comes in the same type of wood as the frame. Mixed wood sorts can be ordered with a fee (please call the hive showroom to specify).

30.7" h | 18.5" d | 20.5" w | seat: 17.3" h

$840.00 + free shipping in the continental U.S.

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.
