CH71 Lounge Chair in Oak White Oil with Fabric Upholstery by Hans J. Wegner

US$4,095per item


With its slender frame and flowing, sculptural form, Hans J. Wegner’s CH71 lounge chair is a testament to the legendary Danish designer’s unique understanding of woodworking and upholstery. Created in 1952, the design shows all the hallmarks of the ‘Master of the Chair’, including a seamless unity of form and function, and a refined aesthetic that has remained effortlessly contemporary throughout the passing decades. As well as being a highly skilled cabinetmaker, Wegner possessed a thorough knowledge of upholstery techniques, allowing him to conceive complex pieces requiring expert craftsmanship. The CH71 lounge chair is one such design, with cushioned curves that wrap flawlessly around a slim, angular frame. The designer also gave great consideration to the chair’s proportions, resulting in a streamlined piece that can add style and softness to even the smallest of spaces. With an array of textiles to choose from, the chair can be upholstered in a variety of colors and textures, while the legs and handles are available in oak and walnut with various finishes.

About the Designer

Hans J. Wegner

Best known for his chairs and seating pieces — though a master of many furniture types like sofas and tables — Hans Wegner was a prolific designer whose elegant, often ebullient, forms and devotion to the finest methods in joinery made "Danish Modern" a popular byword for stylish, well-made furniture in the mid-20th century. Wegner considered himself a carpenter first and a furniture designer second. Like his peers Arne Jacobsen and Finn Juhl, Wegner believed that striking aesthetics in furniture were based on a foundation of practicality: a chair must be comfortable and sturdy before it is chic.In keeping with that tenet, several of Wegner’s best chair designs, seen in dealer listings below, have their roots in traditional seating forms. The Peacock chair (designed in 1947) is a throne-like adaptation of the Windsor chair; pieces from the China chair series (begun in 1944) as well as the 1949 Wishbone chair, with its distinctive Y-shaped back splat, are derived from 17th-century Ming seating pieces, as is the upholstered Ox chair (1960). Wegner’s comfy Papa Bear chair (1951) is an almost surreally re-scaled English wingback chair.Wegner’s most representative piece, the Round chair (1949), gained a footnote in political history when it was used on the TV stage of the first Kennedy-Nixon debate of 1960. That chair, along with Wegner’s more bravura designs, for example the 1963 Shell chair, with its curved surfboard-shaped seat, bring a quietly sculptural presence to a room. Wegner was a designer who revered his primary material — wood — and it shows. His wood gathers patina and character with age; every Hans Wegner piece testifies to the life it has led.
