Classical, comfortable and superbly-crafted

The 1965 design of the CH46 chair perfectly showcases Hans J. Wegner’s affinity for functional, elegant simplicity. The CH46 is inspired by the American Shaker movement from the 1800s, the characteristics of which are recognized globally as one of the attributes of Scandinavian design. The CH46 chair’s warm, natural materials and comfortable design make it perfect for entrance halls, dining rooms, waiting rooms and conference rooms. It allows for true sitting pleasure with its lightly reclined composition, sculptural armrests and dynamic yet graceful expression. The CH46 chair’s comfortable armrests and back design, together with the hand-woven, paper-cord seat, ensure a comfortable sitting experience for hours on end. The chair is also available in the CH47 version without armrests.

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 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.
