Carl Hansen & Son, who has produced Hans J. Wegner furniture for the past 70 years, presents another chair from the hand of the legendary furniture designer. This time it is the CH78 lounge chair, which was first displayed in 1954 and is still a great example of the furniture designer’s intuitive talent for creating organic and inviting shapes that appeal to our senses. CH78 also emphasises Hans J. Wegner’s particular ability to combine aesthetics and functionality and create furniture which spoke to the trends and movements of the time and remains relevant today. 

The CH78, which was nicknamed Mama Bear, is a light lounge chair with a solid upholstered frame and an organic expression. Its angled legs give the chair a relaxed and stable look, and the upwards-angled arm rests topped with delicately moulded, solid wood add a dynamic and inviting expression. With CH78, Hans J. Wegner created a comfortable chair with a distinctive visual identity, which, despite its lightness, offers a warm embrace.

CH78 will be available in stores from September 2020.
