Hans J. Wegner’s CH28T lounge chair from 1951 is as functional as it is sculptural. The chair, which was put into production the following year, is a carefully considered design capturing many of the master’s signature elements.

Comfort and precision in one chair

The CH28T lounge chair by Hans J. Wegner is very precise in its expression. It showcases Wegner’s dedication to finding the optimal balance of function and visually attractive form. Wegner attained an intriguing dynamic between the slender, sweeping seat, the curved backrest and the highly sloping legs. This unique construction, with its rounded edges and delicate details, creates unparalleled comfort with a relaxed expression. Noteworthy details include elegantly shaped and distinctive oval armrests that shoot out from the main frame, along with the light wooden cover caps in oak, that – especially in the walnut variant ¬– contrast with the darker surface of the seat. The chair is available in solid oak or in an oak frame with the seat and back in walnut and cover caps in oak. The CH28T lounge chair is also available in an upholstered model, the CH28P lounge chair.

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.
