Hans J. Wegner chose to use stainless steel in a durable and modern design, upholstered in either leather or fabric, for his CH401 lounge chair. The chair is part of the Kastrup Series that Wegner perfected for private and public spaces.

Stylish and welcoming

The CH401 lounge chair, designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1958, is part of the minimalist Kastrup Series that is still in use in the inviting interior of Copenhagen Airport to this day. The simple, tubular-steel design of the lounge chair proves that upholstered furniture does not need to be large or bulky. Wegner covered the mechanisms by which the upholstered fabric is attached to the frame with a slender, angled element of stainless steel, creating a clean and simple expression. The design is not only aesthetically pleasing – the CH401 lounge chair construction is also exceptionally durable for long-term use. The CH401 lounge chair’s combined backrest and seat are upholstered in either fabric or leather. The Kastrup Series also includes elegant sofas in 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 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.
