CH25 lounge chair, 1949

CH25 lounge chair by Hans Wegner for Carl Hansen & Son.

The CH 25 lounge chair was amongst the first chairs designed by Hans J. Wegner.

The choice of woven paper cord for the seat and back was completely novel and driven by the war-time restrictions. However, the bold design proved an instant success and over 65 years on, the ch25 has become a classic furniture design piece.

A lot of expertise comes into the handwoven parts of the chair: it takes a skilled craftsman 10 hours to weave the 400m of paper cord in a unique pattern.

Carl Hansen opened his furniture workshop in Odense, Denmark in 1908 and soon became known for the high quality of his work.

In the early days, the company produced bespoke furniture – including everything from dining room sets to bedroom suites. As the company grew and times changed, however, it gradually began to produce smaller series of its most popular pieces. This combination of hand craftsmanship and rational series production soon became the firm’s hallmark – and continues to set it apart today.
