CH402 Kastrup Sofa in Stainless Steel with Leather Seat by Hans J. Wegner

US$9,315per item

About

The CH402 sofa from 1990 by Hans J. Wegner has a modern design that is both Minimalist and comfortable. The construction cleverly conceals the mechanisms by which the upholstered fabric is attached to the frame with a slender element of stainless steel, thus creating an original design feature out of a functional necessity. The CH402 sofa’s visionary and simple design and solid wood interior frame are crafted for durability. The sofa is still in use at Copenhagen Airport to this day and is part of the wider Kastrup Series, which also includes a lounge chair and two larger sofa options. All models in the Kastrup Series are available upholstered in fabric or leather and are completed with a characteristic stainless-steel angled cover plate on each side. Dimensions: 26.8in D x 48.8in W x 32.7in H The lead image is for stainless steel is Thor 301 leather. Packing dimensions: 41.9 H x 103.9 ​W x 31.5 L. Weight: 610.04 LBS.

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.
