Well crafted design and sublime comfort

The CH37 dining chair from 1962, designed by Hans J. Wegner, is clearly inspired by the American Shaker furniture principles of simplicity, functionality and craftsmanship. The CH37 also displays many carefully considered details characteristic of Wegner’s style. The chair’s light, elegant appearance is created by the vertical round legs and a backrest which arches backwards - slightly more in the top than in the bottom - in order to achieve the best possible back support. The hand-woven paper cord seat and the gently rounded and flat armrests – fixed to the front legs with a distinctive cap – provide both comfort and sturdiness. The fascinating design of the CH37 dining chair offers a light and yet sturdy expression to comfortably seat many generations. The chair is also available without armrests as model number CH36.

Hans J. Wegner

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.
