CH008 Small Coffee Table in Wood by Hans J. Wegner

$1,770per item

About

The CH008 coffee table designed by Hans J. Wegner thoroughly exemplifies how he spared nothing in his pursuit of perfection and purification in all his designs. Finding it as important to emphasize more hidden structural parts as the key visible elements, Wegner devoted the same amount of time and effort to designing the tabletop as he did to creating the frame that connects it to the three legs. The result is a piece, which all but transforms a practical element into an ornament in its own right. The simple and elegant CH008 coffee table is crafted from solid wood and works beautifully with groups of other Wegner iconic furniture pieces, particularly his lounge chairs. It is available in three different sizes and heights for a variety of needs. Dimensions: 30.7in D x 30.7in W x 17.3in H.

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.
