A stylish, elegant and modern lounge chair

The CH401 lounge chair designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1954 is part of the minimalist Kastrup Series that is still in use as inviting seating areas in Copenhagen Airport to this day. The simple, tubular-steel design of the CH401 lounge chair proved that upholstered furniture did not need to be large or bulky. Wegner covered the sides and seat where the fabric was attached to the frame with a thin steel strip, creating a very clean look. The design is not only aesthetic, however. The construction of the CH401 lounge chair is carefully considered to be exceptionally durable for long-term use. The CH401 lounge chair is available in fabric and leather. The rest of the Kastrup Series comprises of various elegant sofas in a variety of different sizes.

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.
