CH44 Lounge Chair

Hans J. Wegner for Carl Hansen & Son - 1965

With the heart of a cabinetmaker and the mind of a modern functionalist, Hans J. Wegner continually pursued simplified forms and perfect functionality. The CH44 lounge chair is one of the results of these efforts. The chair features both Wegner’s characteristic, defined joints between the front legs and armrests as well as grooves on the top of the rear legs from which to hang a back cushion. The armrests slope upwards towards the rear legs, becoming more slender as they rise, thus elegantly strengthening the vertical joint. The overall effect appears striking and the result is comfortable. The simplicity of the lounge chair design was inspired by the principles of American Shaker furniture. The CH44 lounge chair is crafted from solid wood and features a durable paper cord seat. It is available with optional seat and backrest cushions and the matching low CH53 footstool for added comfort.
