Inspired by the Shaker furniture principles of functionality and craftsmanship, the CH37 chair, designed by Hans J. Wegner, exhibits exceptional well-crafted comfort for sitting pleasure. The unification of the gently-tapered legs, sleek curved armrests, and stunning hand-woven cord seat, create a light, classic appearance, defining of Wegner's style. Aesthetically pleasing yet strongly constructed, it comfortably will seat many generations to come.
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.
