A minimalist, modern design with a purposeful selection of materials chosen, to achieve both durability and lasting style. The CH401 Lounge Chair offers stylish leather upholstery with a combined upholstered backrest and seat. The stainless steel construction of the CH401 provides exceptional durability and completes the clean and simple expression.
Although originally designed and produced for use in public spaces, the CH401 is perfected for use in a home setting, sitting amongst the collection of Hans J. Wegner’s iconic leather lounge chairs ideal for any home living space, study, or snug.
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.
