Designed by Hans Wegner in 1962, the CH338 Table combines a curvaceous body with strong simplistic lines. Demonstrating Wegner's talent of superior craftsmanship, the extendable table's solid wood top seamlessly interconnects with smooth linear beams via organic joints. Allowing for great flexibility for all types of dining, the architectural detailing plays a prominent role in the overall design, with a visible separation line in the centre, allowing for the table to be opened up and for extension leaves to be smoothly slotted in to create a larger surface area. Also available, the Carl Hansen & Son CH337 Dining Table.
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.
