  • Designed in 1950, the CH25 Lounge Chair was one of the first four chairs Hans J. Wegner created especially for Carl Hansen & Søn within his first three weeks with the company. The CH25 Lounge Chair has remained tremendously popular and in continuous production ever since.
  • However, it was a bit of a revolution when Hans J. Wegner designed the CH25 Lounge Chair. Like the Wishbone Chair, it is ambitious and bold in its sculptural shape. Wegner's choice of woven paper cord for the seat and back was unheard of at the time. Paper cord was actually a substitution material used during the war.
  • It takes a skilled craftsman 10 hours to hand weave the seat and back of this chair in a unique pattern using approx. 400 meters of paper cord.The paper cord is availabe in natural or black.
  • Designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1950

 

HISTORY

Designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1950 as one of the first models designed especially for Carl Hansen & Søn.
It has been in production ever since.

DESCRIPTION

Casually classic, the chair derives a sense of lightness from its tapered legs and the dynamic angle of its back legs.
The seat is suspended from the front legs in a construction that is both beautiful and practical, allowing the paper cord weave to continue uninterrupted around the seat.

Approximately 400 m of paper cord is used when making the special weave hiding the knots.
It takes a skilled weaver 8-12 hours to complete the weave.
It is made from solid oak and paper cord.

THE DESIGNER

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.
