CH78 Mama Bear Chair, designed by Hans J. Wegner.

Originally introduced in 1954 as an extension of his CH71 Chair (1952) design, the CH78 Lounge Chair by Hans J. Wegner has become known as the Mama Bear Chair thanks to its inviting, soft curves and warm embrace.

Perfectly proportioned, its finely crafted details come to the fore on the supportive and surprisingly lightweight design. Tapered wooden legs and armrests, carefully crafted from solid wood, complement the new Kvadrat Fiord upholstery inspired by forest and seaside landscapes of Scandinavia to invite rest and relaxation.

Available in one of six natural shades, Carl Hansen & Søn is delighted to offer this iconic design in new colors, and at a special introductory price until 31 December 2020.
