In his classic CH47 chair from 1966, Hans J. Wegner has used the same design idea as his CH46 armchair from the same year and the CH44 lounge chair from the previous year.
The CH47 design is simple and stylish with its woven seat and a solid wooden frame with rounded profiles. An important element is the curved hind legs which give CH47 a laid-back look. But more important, the curved legs are chosen to give the backrest the correct angle but also to ensure that the chair cannot fall backwards.
In Wegner’s design of CH47, you can see how he has used his expert carpentry knowledge to create a sturdy chair. He has strengthened all the joints by displacing the rails and stretchers, ensuring that the dowels can be used at full height and maximum depth when inserted into the chair legs.
Seat cushion is leather and comes in various colour options.
21.6" wide by 20" deep by 31" tall, 17.3" seat height.
