ch29 sawbuck chair

by Hans Wegner, from Carl Hansen & Son

ch29 sawbuck chair

Design Hans Wegner, 1952
hardwood, upholstery, finish options
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son

By the unusual construction of CH 29 Wegner achieved a couple of advantages. First of all it made it possible to build a chair as sturdy as any traditional chair but with the use of fewer parts. Another advantage was the comfort, as the construction enabled him to make the seat wider in the front, which along with the heavily curved back made the chair extremely comfortable. The cutting out in the sides of the back, the pointed legs and the elaborate execution of the joint between forelegs and hind legs are details making the sawhorse chair a distinctive and sculptural piece of furniture. CH 29 is mainly used in private dining environments but restaurants have also recognized its comfort in combination with its space-saving dimensions.

31.8" h | 19.2" d | 20.8" w | seat: 17.3" h

Hans Wegner

Hans Wegner’s thoughtful high quality work contributed to the popularity of Danish Modern design. His style is described as Organic Functionalism. He designed over 500 different chairs with many famous icons among them. Wegner worked as a cabinet maker's apprentice and soon attended the Danish School of Arts & Crafts and the Architectural Academy.
Carl Hansen invited Hans Wegner to create designs in 1949 and launched a mutually beneficial relationship bringing success to the company and exposure to Hans Wegner. Wegner was still relatively unknown, but soon gained wide acclaim that continues to today as a Master of Danish Modern Design.
