Danish design classics at the office Carl Hansen & Søn relaunches Wegner office concept

Hans J. Wegner was a pioneering force in uniting form and function. Carl Hansen & Søn demonstrates this once again when the Danish furniture producer presents a new office furniture concept at Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2011 in Milan Pavilion 5, stand E01. Full of thoughtful details and created with unparalleled craftsmanship, with this furniture it’s not just another day at the office!

 Wegner created the new office concept as part of the CH100 series. Now, Carl Hansen & Søn brings workplace aesthetics to the next level with the CH110 desk and accompanying office chairs CH111, CH112 and CH113. Flawless surfaces of luxurious materials such as oak, walnut and leather exude calm and authority, while the curved legs in polished stainless steel bring a natural softness to the minimalistic design. Typical Wegner.

 1 desk – 3 chairs

Wegner designed the four pieces in 1970 as part of his larger office series. Carl Hansen & Søn has crafted the relaunch according to Wegner’s original drawings and specifications. Also here, as is clearly revealed in the desk, the devil is in the details.

 The lustrous desktop rests effortlessly on brushed stainless steel legs. The symmetrical desk drawers are handcrafted with dovetail joints, and their custom handles are ingeniously constructed so they do not pull loose even after years of use. The desk is available in oak or walnut, oiled or lacquered.

 But what is a desk without a chair? As the master of chair design, Hans J. Wegner also had a few ideas about office seating. He created no fewer than three chairs to complement the CH110 desk – all for different work situations.

 The robust construction of the CH111 chair makes it perfect 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 achieves a discreet beauty that deserves to be seen from any angle. It is available in leather or fabric, with or without upholstered armrests.

 CH112 and CH113 are variations on a single chair design. Both the conference chair (CH113) and the lower easy chair (CH112) are made ​​of steel and saddle leather, with or without upholstered armrests. With their minimalistic construction, both chairs are ideal in the conference or boardroom, or as stylish design statements in the office.

 CH110 retails from £7002.00

CH111 retails from £1715.00

CH112 retails from £1258.00

CH113 retails from £1222.00

 The new designs will be available early summer 2011.
