Known affectionately as ‘the smiling chair’ the CH07 is unique in appearance, using a stable triangular footprint to great effect. The architectural curve gives the lounge chair a sense of lightness and security. Wegner's genius lies in his understanding of both form and function, creating sculptural pieces that still work as integral parts of your living spaces.
The use of timeless materials like wood veneer and tactile fabric gives the chair exceptional longevity. Arrange in a pair around your coffee table or as a stand-alone, statement piece. Also available with leather upholstery.
With his love of natural materials and his deep understanding of the need for furniture to be functional as well as beautiful, Hans J. Wegner (1914-2007) made mid-century Danish design popular on an international scale. He began his career as a cabinetmaker in 1931 and subsequently entered the Copenhagen School of Arts & Crafts. After receiving his architectural degree in 1938, he worked as a designer in Arne Jacobsen and Erik Muller's architectural office before establishing his own office in 1943.
