Hans J. Wegner Three Legged CH07 Shell Chair

Hans J. Wegner's three-legged shell CH07 chair

Hans J. Wegner’s three-legged shell CH07 chair was originally introduced in 1963. A few limited series were produced, but the project soon came to a stand still.

The 90s brought a growing interest in chairs of more individual designs. The chair was relaunched in 1997 and fortunately the new manufactureer had been able to keep down the costs. These two factors in combination resulted in an increasing market, and after 34 years oblivion the chair finally got is breakthrough. As a curiosity it is worth mentioning that one of the original shell chairs from the 60s was sold at 104.000 Danish Kroner at Christies in London in 1999.

The chair is made of solid oiled walnut, upholstered in glove/alcantara.

This must be a good seating one, albeit the wings make it a bit wide for a small room.

The Classic Saw Buck Chair or CH28 Chair by Hans Wegner. By own experience I know it sits unsurpassable. The only little problem it has that you can’t easily stand up from it.

CH445 Wingchair by Hans Wegner

In 1960 Wegner released his soon to be famous CH445 Wingchair in limited quantities. In 2006 Carl Hansen & Sons dusted off the blue prints and reintroduced the lounge chair to immediate success and awards at the IMM in Cologne, and the Copenhagen International Furniture Fair that same year. Today the wingchair is what Hans Wegner envisioned it to be and then some reaching true furniture icon status and a place in the homes and hearts of modern furniture lovers world wide. According to Carl Hansen & Sons we have worked with Wegners original drawings and some of the few pieces that remain from the sixties, when a smaller number of them were produced by hand. And we’re proud to say that we have upheld the original construction and materials – including solid beech frames and hand-sewn piping – just the way that Wegner designed it. If you want furniture that will last in not only quality of construction, but style as well, the licensed modern classics are the way to go.

Circle Chair by Hans Wegner

The Circle Chair is a laminated ring with stretched, wide-meshed net. One of the experiments that proved to be an international success. The Circle Chair was Wegner and PP Mobler’s contribution to the SE Exhibition in 1986.
And, as usual, the prototype was not completed before the very last moment – the morning of the show to be exact. Consequently, the chair was rushed of to the show by master of crafts Ejnar Pedersen in his car – which happened to break down on the way. The chair has a really interesting design, and I see it as an exceptional piece of outdoor furniture.
