By Hans J. Wegner for Carl Hansen & Søn

January 2017
CH23, one of the first four chairs Hans J. Wegner designed for Carl Hansen & Søn, is now back in production. Since the time of its inception in 1950, this functional and elegant dining chair chair drew interest due to its inherent simplicity and avant-garde design. The Danish furniture designer possessed a unique ability to render sophisticated, complex designs that pushed the limits of wood’s potential, developing a very personal expression in this chair, with its special double-woven seat and arched rear legs for optimal stability.
