Carl Hansen & Son Reintroduces Its Iconic CH30 Chair

Carl Hansen & Son Reintroduces Its Iconic CH30 Chair

Designed by the late designer Hans J. Wegner and originally introduced in 1954, the CH30 chair quickly acquired cult status within the design world. Now Carl Hansen & Son is reintroducing the chair this spring.

The CH30 was part of the Danish furniture designer’s quest to create the perfect chair. Wegner tirelessly tinkered away on the project and the CH30 was the final result; it has been a mainstay in the 65 years since.

Just like the original, the new version features Wegner’s signature organic forms and detailed craftsmanship. Each chair is equipped with a wide, form-pressed padded seat and a tapered backrest for both style and comfort. The new design is based on Wegner’s original drawings–the only addition is a two-inch height increase to accommodate modern standards.
