Complex design and supreme comfort

The CH445 Wing Chair was built by Hans J. Wegner as a fully upholstered easy chair on a solid beech frame that rests on hand-finished stainless steel legs. The composition showcases his excellent understanding of material and structural dynamics and presents a dramatic, sculptural shape with instant visual appeal. The true beauty of this sophisticated work, however, lies beneath the surface. Hidden out of view is a seat and backrest design that allows for a variety of positions, always providing superb support for the back, shoulders, neck and head. The thin legs, slightly higher in front than in the back, give the chair an ideal pitch. Designed in 1960, the Wing Chair was originally produced in very limited numbers, and relaunched in 2006 based on Wegner’s original design. The CH445 Wing Chair is available with the matching CH446 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 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.
