ch445 lounge chair & ch446 footrest

Design Hans Wegner, 1960
Solid beech frame, upholstery, stainless steel legs
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son

"Being able to change positions in a chair has always been a foundation of Wegner's ergonomics; designing a chair that combines form and function so beautifully is Wegner's genius." -Knud Erik Hansen

In 1960, Danish design legend Hans J. Wegner sketched an upholstered easy chair with calm, clean lines and exceptional functionality. This chair was never put into series production until now.

The CH445's look is unmistakably Wegner. Like his other easy chairs, sculptural lines allow it to stand on its own in a variety of settings. Among Wegner's easy chairs, the CH445 is notable for the serenity and harmony of its design. While the CH445 is a work of art, it is made for sitting not just for looking, and it greets its guests with exceptionally generous comfort.

Produced using Hans Wegner's original drawings with the original construction and materials techniques - including solid beech frames and hand-sewn piping. Available in your choice of fabric or leather upholstery and includes stainless steel legs. Optional neck cushion for the lounge chair is also available. Please call the hive showroom with any questions: 1-866-663-4483.

The CH445 has been nominated for the classic innovation award at IMM Cologne 2006.
