Carl Hansen weaving demonstration for London Craft Week
Benny visited us last year when he worked on the paper cord seat of the CH22 lounge chair designed by Hans Wegner. This year he will be weaving the seat of a different but no less illustrious Wegner design: the CH23 dining chair.
Designed at the same time as the iconic CH24 Wishbone Chair, the CH23 was one of the first four chairs that Wegner designed for the renowned Swedish furniture manufacturer.
Relaunched by Carl Hansen at this year’s Stockholm Furniture Fair after five decades out of production, the CH23 has an intricate double-woven paper cord seat that requires considerable experience and skill to produce.
Benny will be craftsman-in-residence at our Upper Street shop from 10 am to 12 pm on Saturday 6th May.
So whether you’re interested in modern design or simply intrigued to watch a master craftsman at work, do join us for what promises to be a fascinating insight into the expertise and heritage that goes into making each Carl Hansen chair.
