Design Hans Wegner, 1965
Hardwood, natural cord caning
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son
An elegant dining chair that is often used as a conference chair and in churches. CH46 is with armrests, and CH47 is without armrests. The seat is hand woven in high-quality paper cord and is available in natural or black cord. Designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1965.
Hans J. Wegner was born in 1914 in Tønder in Southern Denmark, the son of a shoemaker. At the age of 17, he completed his apprenticeship as a cabinetmaker in the workshop of H. F. Stahlberg where his first designs saw the light of day. At the age of twenty he moved to Copenhagen, Denmark, to attend the School of Arts and Crafts, where he studied from 1936-1938 before embarking on a career as an architect.
The round legs establish an organic frame for the entire chair. The straight seat, narrow armrests and simple back slats provide minimalistic contrast to the frame.
