Designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1960.
Produced in very limited numbers during the 1960s and eventually put
out of production.
Carl Hansen & Son re-launched the chair in 2006 based on Hans J. Wegner's original 1:1 drawings.
When re-launched, CH445 immediately received design awards and international acclaim.
The CH445, also known as "the Wing Chair" is a fully upholstered easy chair on stainless steel legs.
The design of the backrest and seat enables a variety of positions always providing excellent support for the back, shoulders, neck and head.
The stainless steel legs give the chair an ideal pitch as the front legs are slightly higher than the rear legs.
The interesting wing-like design of the chair makes it a sculptural addition to both public and private spaces.
It is best placed where its elegant lines can be viewed from all sides and works equally well in groups and on its own.
It is built upon a solid beech frame, with hand-finished stainless steel legs that are virtually maintenance free.
Made from beech, stainless steel and cold foam. Upholstered in the customer's choice of fabric or leather. The footrest, CH446, fits perfectly with the Wing 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.
