CH28T Lounge Chair in Wood Finish by Hans J. Wegner

$4,870per item

About

The CH28T lounge chair by Hans J. Wegner is very precise in its expression. It showcases Wegner’s dedication to finding the optimal balance of function and visually attractive form. Wegner attained an intriguing dynamic between the slender, sweeping seat, the curved backrest and the highly sloping legs. This unique construction, with its rounded edges and delicate details, creates unparalleled comfort with a relaxed expression. Noteworthy details include elegantly shaped and distinctive oval armrests that shoot out from the main frame, along with the light wooden cover caps in oak, that, especially in the walnut variant, contrast with the darker surface of the seat. The chair is available in solid oak or in an oak frame with the seat and back in walnut and cover caps in oak. The CH28T lounge chair is also available in an upholstered model, the CH28P lounge chair. Dimensions: 26.3in D x 28.7in W x 30.3in H. Packing dimensions: 42.1 H x 41.3 ​W x 40.6 L. Weight: 313.85 LBS.

About the Designer

Hans J. Wegner

Best known for his chairs and seating pieces — though a master of many furniture types like sofas and tablesHans Wegner was a prolific designer whose elegant, often ebullient, forms and devotion to the finest methods in joinery made "Danish Modern" a popular byword for stylish, well-made furniture in the mid-20th century.

Wegner considered himself a carpenter first and a furniture designer second. Like his peers Arne Jacobsen and Finn Juhl, Wegner believed that striking aesthetics in furniture were based on a foundation of practicality: a chair must be comfortable and sturdy before it is chic.

In keeping with that tenet, several of Wegner’s best chair designs, seen in dealer listings below, have their roots in traditional seating forms. The Peacock chair (designed in 1947) is a throne-like adaptation of the Windsor chair; pieces from the China chair series (begun in 1944) as well as the 1949 Wishbone chair, with its distinctive Y-shaped back splat, are derived from 17th-century Ming seating pieces, as is the upholstered Ox chair (1960). Wegner’s comfy Papa Bear chair (1951) is an almost surreally re-scaled English wingback chair.

Wegner’s most representative piece, the Round chair (1949), gained a footnote in political history when it was used on the TV stage of the first Kennedy-Nixon debate of 1960. That chair, along with Wegner’s more bravura designs, for example the 1963 Shell chair, with its curved surfboard-shaped seat, bring a quietly sculptural presence to a room. Wegner was a designer who revered his primary material — wood — and it shows. His wood gathers patina and character with age; every Hans Wegner piece testifies to the life it has led.
