Stainless steel design in perfect balance

The CH111 chair designed by Hans J. Wegner is part of a series of significant furniture with a frame in flat stainless steel and seats and backs upholstered in leather. The chair’s subtle strength and clean and simple lines are the essence of masterful design. One of the striking features of the CH111 chair's shape is the rear leg which has been twisted through 90 degrees to fit into and thereby provide optimal support to the upholstered backrest. An easier solution would have been to simply weld the armrest onto the extended rear leg, but Wegner never compromised on quality or aesthetics. The CH111 chair was designed alongside the elegant CH110 desk. The series represents some of Wegner's finest steel-framed furniture.

Designer
Among Danish furniture designers, Hans J. Wegner is considered one of the most creative, innovative and prolific. Often referred to as the master of the chair, Wegner created more than 500 chairs in his lifetime – many of them considered masterpieces. He is probably best known for his iconic Wishbone Chair which has been in continuous production since 1950. The core of Wegner’s legacy is his focus on bringing the inner workings – the soul – of the furniture to the exterior, where the simplicity and functionality can be appreciated.
