Solid Wood Chair by Hans J. Wegner

When it comes to furniture, the classics are always something to be inspired by but also to look forward to for your creation. There are many impressive figures that have become legends. One of them is Hans J. Wegner, the undisputed master of Danish chair design. He designed pieces such as the Wishbone Chair, the Wegner Wing Chair or Shell Chair. The CH33 Chair is another one of his beautiful creations.

This chair is a classic. It has been originally designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1956 and has become an inspiration for many other creations even since. Recently it has been reborn and has begun to be produced once again. It is currently manufactured under license in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son. The chair has a very simple but very chic design. It impresses with its sturdy and yet so delicate shape and design.

The overall dimensions of the CH33 are 28’’ h | 18.9’’ d | 21.7’’ w and the seat is 17.3″ h. It has a compact design that features clean, simple but elegant and delicate lines. It has a solid wood frame and a veneer seat and back. The back piece can be crafted in a contrasting wood but the buttons will always be made from the same wood as the frame. It’s an element that respects the original. Several types of wood and finishes are available.
