Furniture and 3D puzzle in one

The CH410 Peter’s Chair was designed by Hans J. Wegner during the Second World War. Finding quality gifts in wartime Europe was not easy, so when Wegner needed a suitable christening gift for Peter, the son of his friend and fellow furniture designer Børge Mogensen, he took matters into his own hands. An accomplished cabinetmaker, Wegner conceived and built a simple yet ingenious table and chair set that would work as both a functional object and an engaging toy. Designed as a life-size 3D puzzle in untreated beech, the set is easily assembled without the use of tools. Originally designed as part of a set, the CH410 Peter’s Chair can be paired with the CH411 Peter’s Table. Together, these pieces reveal the extent of Wegner’s innovative spirit as well as his superior ability to achieve simplicity while honoring the needs and natural interests of children.

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.
