CH825 Credenza with Stainless Steel Base by Hans J. Wegner

$10,795per item

About

The CH825 credenza was designed by Hans J. Wegner as part of a series of three and it soon became a popular item at auctions, valued for its style and functionality. In 2014, Carl Hansen & Søn relaunched the design based on Wegner’s original drawings to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Wegner’s birth. The credenza offers an ideal surface for artistically arranging favorite objects, with plenty of additional storage space behind the elegant roller shutter doors. The interior features adjustable shelves and pullout drawers and is designed to enable simple installation of additional drawers. The credenza can be mounted on round legs in solid wood or on steel loops, which are also used in Wegner’s CH100 series. The various options for the CH825 credenza allow it to be matched with a wide range of design styles and settings. Dimensions: 19.3in D x 78.7in W x 31.8in H.

About Hans J. Wegner (Designer)

Best known for his chairs and seating pieces — though a master of many furniture types like sofas and tables — Hans 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.

About The Maker

At Carl Hansen & Søn, we believe that iconic design is a combination of simplicity, aesthetics and functionality brought to life through skillful work with the highest quality materials. For over 100 years, we have specialized in providing the outstanding furniture craftsmanship that brings visionary design concepts to life. Through the years, Carl Hansen & Søn has maintained a strong focus on preserving Danish design classics while continuing to expand out collection to represent influential new designers. Our goal: to gather the best, most iconic modern furniture under one roof. Carl Hansen & Søn’s evolution has been deeply influenced by our long-term relationship with one of the greatest designers of all time: Hans J. Wegner. The creative partnership began in 1949, when Wegner developed a successful furniture series exclusively for Carl Hansen & Søn, which included the now-iconic CH24 Wishbone Chair. We also produce important works by the renowned mid-century Danish masters such as Wegner, Børge Mogensen, Ole Wanscher, Frits Henningsen, Arne Jacobsen, Kaare Klint, and Poul Kjæarholm, and contemporary designers such as Tadao Ando, EOOS and Brad Ascalon.
