Hans Wegner CH-23 Teak and Beech Dining Chairs, Set of 8

On Hold
$6,200per set

About

A fine set of eight Hans Wegner design CH-23 Teak, Beech and papercord woven seats. The CH-23 design originated circa 1951. A very simple and modern minimalist design where the small design details are the decoration and add to the structural integrity of the chairs. Light and delicate. The teak backs bare the exposed joinery with the solid beech back supports. The intricately woven papercord seats are able to withstand weight and moisture to hold up against age and use. Measures: Approximately 17" deep x 20.5" wide x 30.5" high. The seat height is approximately 18". Structurally sound and sturdy. Durable design. Wear commensurate with age and use. There is some darkening of the oiled finish, minor scuffs, bumps, scratches and some minor staining to the legs and backs. One has an old repair that has been professionally restored.

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.
