With the heart of a cabinetmaker and the mind of a modern functionalist, Hans J. Wegner continually pursued simplified forms and perfect functionality. The CH44 lounge chair is one of the results of these efforts.

Honest design and refined comfort

The CH44 lounge chair from 1965 by Hans J. Wegner is simplicity perfected. The chair features both Wegner’s characteristic, defined joints between the front legs and armrests as well as grooves on the top of the rear legs from which to hang a back cushion. The armrests slope upwards towards the rear legs, becoming more slender as they rise, thus elegantly strengthening the vertical joint. The overall effect appears striking and the result is comfortable. The simplicity of the lounge chair design was inspired by the principles of American Shaker furniture, which also was Wegner’s inspiration for the closely related CH46 and CH47 chairs. The CH44 lounge chair is crafted from solid wood and features a durable paper cord seat. It is available with optional seat and backrest cushions and the matching low CH53 footstool for added comfort.

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.
