The very essence of lightness and style

The CH29P Sawbuck Chair, designed by Hans J. Wegner has clean, simple lines and a unique and sturdy construction that requires fewer parts than traditional chairs. The wider seat front and lightly reclined back are beautifully crafted to ingeniously enhance comfort. This stylish chair was taken out of production in the 1970s, and relaunched 20 years later at the suggestion of Wegner’s daughter Marianne, becoming an immediate success thanks to its organic, comfort-driven structure and unique aesthetic. The CH29P Sawbuck Chair can be customized in an array of color and material combinations with appealing upholstery options in fabric or leather. The Sawbuck Chair is also available in the CH29T version with an oak frame and walnut seat and back.

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 designed 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.
