The Wing Chair Design:
Hans J. Wegner’s CH445 chair, also known as the Wing Chair, is a fully upholstered easy chair that rests on a stainless-steel frame. The armchair, with its distinctive lines and pleasant seating comfort, is a fine example of how a high-backed armchair should be according to Wegner. His innate and extensive knowledge of wood resulted in a design philosophy anchored in fine craftmanship, although it was Wegner’s passion for organic shapes and sculptural fluidity which inspired the form and silhouette of his Wing Chair.
The Wing Chair embodies Wegner’s aesthetics talents, with expert artistry admires at first glance. The true beauty of the piece, however, is the combination of design and composition that includes concealed ergonomic craftmanship beneath the surface. An intrinsically designed seat and backrest enable a variety of positions, providing superb support for the back, shoulders, neck, and head. The legs, higher at the front than the back, give the chair the ideal pitch. The Wing Chair was designed in 1960 yet was produced in very limited numbers. It was relaunched by Carl Hansen & Søn in 2006 based on the original innovate design.
The CH446 Footstool was originally designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1958 for the CH401 chair. It has a light appearance, inspite of its solid-wood interior frame, with tubular stainless steel legs that will last for generations.
Hans J. Wegner
Hans J. Wegner was part of the spectacular generation that created the first wave of Danish Modern design. “Many foreigners have asked me how we created the Danish style,” Wegner once said. “And I’ve answered that it was a continuous process of purication and of simplification – to cut down to the simplest possible design of four legs, a seat, and a combined back- and armrest.” The core of Wegner’s legacy is his focus on showing the inner soul of furniture pieces through a simple and functional exterior. Wegner began his apprenticeship with Danish master cabinetmaker H. F. Stahlberg when he was just 14 years old. Later, he moved to Copenhagen and attended the School of Arts and Crafts from 1936 to 1938.
Wegner’s background as a cabinetmaker gave him a deep understanding of how to integrate exacting joinery techniques with exquisite form. His aesthetic was also based on a deep respect for wood and its characteristics, and a vast curiosity about other natural materials that enabled him to bring an organic, natural softness to formalistic minimalism. Wegner established his own design studio in 1943 and created a series of chairs for
Carl Hansen & Søn in 1950, including the Wishbone Chair, which has been in production at Carl Hansen & Søn ever since.
