hans wegner ch825 credenza

Design Hans Wegner, 1959
Wood veneer, solid wood, stainless steel
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son

Hans Wegner's Credenza from 1958 is based on his original drawings and was originally one of a series of three credenzas. Although it looks simple, the credenza features an advanced design with roller shutter doors (tambour), requiring double sides and rear panel, between which the roller shutters run on a track and disappear when opened.

The credenza, originally made of rosewood and teak, has today been replaced with walnut and oak. Its interior shelves and pull-out drawers are solid oak. The legs are either round solid oak, walnut or stainless steel loops, which are also used in Wegner's CH100 series. The interior features adjustable shelves and pull-out drawers.

Hans J. Wegner is one of the architects and designers who made Danish Design world famous. Wegner inscribes his name in the history of design first and foremost via a range of tables and chairs which are without predecessors in furniture design, yet stand in their own right as the most natural thing in the world, inevitable like new letters in the alphabet.

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.
