The CH23 chair was one of the first four chairs Hans J. Wegner designed for Carl Hansen & Son, and after five decades it's now back in production.
This simple, functional, & beautifully crafted chair was very well received at its unveiling in 1950, the chair offered an early example of Wegner's unique flair for design and his insightful craftsmanship. The CH23 also marked the beginning of a long and successful collaboration between the prolific, innovative designer and Carl Hansen & Son.
Wegner demonstrated his incredible talent for design through the accumulation of many small details, which together form a chair that is both practical and beautiful. The cruciform shape of the elegant cover caps in the backrest which he used to mark the junction between the form-pressed veneer backrest and the chair’s frame. The special double-woven seat, and the arched shape of the rear legs to ensure optimal stability. While the chair may appear quite uncomplicated at first glance, a closer inspection reveals many fine details.
With a relatively compact footprint the CH23 still manages to be very comfortable and convenient, ideal for use in the home or commercially.
