In 1970, Hans J. Wegner came up with an exclusive office concept consisting of a desk and accompanying chair plus a slender easy chair. The series represents some of Wegner's very finest steel-framed furniture.
One of the striking features of the CH111 chair's design is the back leg which has been twisted through 180 degrees and is used to provide support to the upholstery on the chair's back. The easy solution would have been to weld two pieces of steel but, of course, Wegner never compromised on quality. Fortunately.
Designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1970.
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 CH111 chair was re-launched in 2011.
The chair has a straightforward, cubistic design which has retained its contemporary look through the years.
The back legs gently twist from the otherwise flat steel frame thereby embracing the back of the chair - a classic example of Hans J. Wegner ́s attention to detail - a combination of form and function at its best. The fully upholstered seat and back provide great comfort.
It was originally designed as a desk chair, but is also commonly used around a conference table.
Made from stainless steel, cold foam and European down. Upholstered in the customer's choice of leather or fabric.

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.
