Designed by Hans Wegner, 1962
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son
Hans J. Wegner's clean-cut CH36 dining chair is as comfortable to sit in as it is beautiful to behold.
Simple, functional, and thoughtfully made, this 1962 Wegner design demonstrates the influence of Shaker furniture principles and craftsmanship on Wegner's aesthetic.
Of course, the master of chair design infused the CH36 dining chair with his own subtle touches. The legs taper off slightly toward the floor, creating a light, elegant appearance. The top of the curved back is more rounded than the bottom, enhancing back support. The frame and beautifully hand-woven paper cord seat, while appearing delicate, are sturdily constructed to comfortably seat generations.
