The flat, stainless steel sidepieces on the chair complement the legs of the chair, giving it a clean and dynamic profile, as well as hiding any upholstery seams.
CH401 works equally well in groups and on its own, both in high-use public areas and in private homes.
Made from beech, stainless steel, cold foam. 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.
