The CH25, one of the four chairs Hans J. Wegner designed especially for Carl Hansen & Søn in his first three weeks with the company in 1950, was considered rather revolutionary.

Carefully hand-woven design with great durability

The CH25 lounge chair, like many of Hans J. Wegner’s other iconic designs, is ambitious and bold in its sculptural shape. It also caused a stir, however, with its materials. Wegner’s choice of woven paper cord – a wartime substitution material – for the seat and back was unheard of at the time. But Wegner liked the look and durability of the material, and so have generations of his fans. The CH25 lounge chair has remained extremely popular and in continuous production ever since: a testament to Wegner’s visionary approach. It takes a skilled craftsman 10 hours to complete one chair seat and back by hand, using about 400 meters of paper cord and a double weaving technique that creates the chair’s unique pattern – the striking result of this detailed process is a unique chair that is equally beautiful and inspiring from all angles.

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.
