Inspired by the traditions of artisans

This CH29T chair, was taken out of production in the 1970s, and at the suggestion of Wegner’s daughter Marianne, was reintroduced 20 years later. The chair was instantly popular due to its appealing aesthetic and organic shapes.

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.
