This chair was designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1970 as a part of a complete series of office furniture, including meeting and easy chairs, a desk, meeting and coffee tables, and sofas.
The series was produced in limited quantities in the 1970s.
It was out of production until 2008, when Carl Hansen & Son re- launched parts of the series in connection with the company's 100th anniversary - hence the series name "CH100".

The characteristic design employs hand-polished, stainless steel for the visible frame which also constitutes the legs of the chair.

As a driving force behind 'Danish Modern', Hans J. Wegner helped change the general public's view of furniture in the 1950s and 1960s. His passion for designing chairs, more than 500 of them, is recognized worldwide and reflected in his title 'the Master of the Chair'. He is famous for integrating perfectly executed joints with exquisite shapes and combining them with a constant curiosity for materials and deep respect for wood and its natural characteristics. His designs furnish minimalism with organic and natural softness.
