CH25

An elegant and lightweight lounge chair well-suited for any room.

Designed by Hans J. Wegner.

Product

Designed in 1950, the CH25 Lounge Chair was one of the first four chairs Hans J. Wegner created especially for Carl Hansen & Søn within his first three weeks with the company. The CH25 Lounge Chair has remained tremendously popular and in continuous production ever since.

However, it was a bit of a revolution when Hans J. Wegner designed the CH25 Lounge Chair. Like the Wishbone Chair, it is ambitious and bold in its sculptural shape. Wegner's choice of woven paper cord for the seat and back was unheard of at the time. Paper cord was actually a substitution material used during the war.

It takes a skilled craftsman 10 hours to hand weave the seat and back of this chair in a unique pattern using approx. 400 meters of paper cord.The paper cord is availabe in natural or black.

Designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1950
