New Hans J Wegner office concept

, , , , , By Catherine

The new office furniture concept presented by Carl Hansen & Son is a continuation of the original CH100 series created by Hans J. Wegner in 1970 as part of his larger office series. The four-piece series will include the CH110 desk and accompanying office chairs CH111, CH112 and CH113.

Carl Hansen & Søn will relaunch the office furniture series according to Wegner’s original drawings and specifications. The CH110 desk is made of luxurious materials such as oak, walnut and leather which exude calm and authority, while the curved legs are finished in polished stainless steel. It lends a soft feel to the minimalistic design.

The symmetrical desk drawers are handcrafted with dovetail joints. The custom handles of the drawers are constructed in a manner that they do not pull loose even after years of use. The desk is available in oak or walnut, with oiled or lacquered.

Hans J. Wegner originally designed three chairs to accompany the large CH110 desk for different work situations. The robust construction of the relaunched CH111 chair makes it suitable for working at a desk or at a conference table. It is built on a frame of solid beech wood with stainless steel legs and sidepieces. It is available in leather or fabric, with or without upholstered armrests.

CH112 and CH113 are variations on a single chair design. The conference chair CH113, and the lower easy chair CH112, are made of steel and saddle leather, with or without upholstered armrests. With their minimalist construction, both chairs are designed to be suitable in the conference or boardroom, or as stylish design statements in the office.
