A modern dining chair that offers great comfort and stability. CH33 is a classic chair that appears contemporary despite clear design references to the simple lines of the 50s and 60s. You can choose to mix and match the woods used with the back and the wooden seat made from one type of wood and the frame from another. The chair was designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1957.
Hans J. Wegner designed the CH33 for Carl Hansen & Son in 1957. It was produced for 10 consecutive years before being taken out of production. Carl Hansen & Son re-introduced the CH33 in 2012.
The CH33 expresses many typical aspects of Hans J. Wegner's best design. It is a very light, graceful chair that functions as a dining chair or as a sculptural addition to almost any room. Every part of the chair employs rounded, organic forms.
The tapered legs and cross pieces are thickest where they need to support load-bearing joints, and gracefully become more slender as the design allows. The slightly splayed legs make for a very robust construction and visually signal the light chair's structural stability. The joints connecting the back legs to the backrest are visible classic examples of Hans J. Wegner's penchant for honest design that highlights good craftsmanship.
Seat and backrest is made from pressure-formed hardwood laminate. CH33 comes in beech, oak or smoked oak.
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.
