Bold design and unsurpassed craftsmanship

The CH101 lounge chair by Hans J. Wegner is a dynamic yet comfortable lounge chair that is hand-crafted on a solid wood interior frame to enable the finest upholstery methods. For the visible part of the frame, Wegner selected hand-polished stainless steel whose inherently industrial feel is offset by its elegant form. The combination is experimental and bold. The CH101 lounge chair was designed in 1970 as part of an exclusive office furniture series that represents some of the finest steel work of Wegner’s career. The series was relaunched in 2008 in celebration of Carl Hansen & Søn’s 100th anniversary. It includes three variations of a sofa plus two coffee table designs for a wide selection of interiors.

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.
