Design Hans Wegner, 1952
Oak legs, walnut seat & back
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son

The CH29T dining chair, also known as "The Sawbuck Chair" due to the shape of the chairs legs resembling that of the simple sawbucks or saw horses traditionally used by carpenters and woodcutters, was originally designed for Carl Hansen & Søn by Wegner in 1952. It was taken out of production in the 1970's and it was Wegner's daughter Marianne Wegner who suggested it be reintroduced 20 years later. The CH29 chair became an immediate success due to its simple construction, which provides great comfort while still being visually unique.

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.
