Hans J. Wegner's philosophy of never designing furniture with a
backside is clearly visible in the construction of his round CH008
The seemingly simple three-legged design has become one of
Wegner's most iconic. And deservingly so, given that an equal
amount of effort went into designing the solid wood tabletop as the
solid wood frame that connects the three round legs to the
tabletop. In short, Wegner spared nothing in his pursuit of
perfection, emphasizing key visible elements as much as the more
hidden structural parts.
The side table pairs well with groups of other Wegner icons,
such as the CH07 Shell Chair or the CH445 Wing Chair.
The CH008 Coffee Table is available in three different
diameteres (78cm, 88cm and 100cm) and three different heights
(44cm, 48cm and 53cm). It was designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1954.
