Honest construction and refined comfort

The CH44 lounge chair from 1965 by Hans J. Wegner is simplicity perfected. The chair features Wegner’s characteristic, visible joints between the front legs and armrests, with the armrests widening to provide strength to the joints that connect to the back legs. The overall effect is striking and extremely comfortable. The chair is crafted from solid wood and features a durable paper cord seat. It is available with optional seat and back cushions and the matching CH53 footstool for added comfort. The purity of the CH44 lounge chair design was inspired by the American Shaker furniture. This movement also inspired the closely related CH46 and CH47 chairs.

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.
