The Full Story

Why the CH25 is such a special chair

Sometimes referred to as an “easy chair”, the shape of the CH25 is deceptively brilliant. It may look simple, but the design pivots around combining aesthetic appeal with reliable comfort.

Among its most striking features is the delicately tapered front legs, which complement arching back legs that seamlessly transition into the chair seat. The result is a structure resting at a visually pleasing angle, which is also crafted to provide highly effective posture support.

It’s the ideal low-slung chair if you want to personalise the overall aesthetic too, as the CH25 can be tailored by selecting a wooden finish for its main body and a specific shade for its hand-woven paper cord seat and backrest.

Where would a CH25 chair look “at home”?

The CH25 is a casual yet smart chair that lends itself to a multitude of different settings; from contemporary apartments to country homes, and from modern meeting rooms to high-class hotel lobbies.

The CH25 chair can be placed beside coffee tables as a lounge chair or alongside high-end workspace tables as a stylish meeting room chair; both with equal aplomb. However, its design is so confident that it also warrants a solo position in any décor and situation.

Imagine sitting in this elegant yet functional chair, enjoying views from a picture window in your home, or relaxing in it while reading by the fire.

The antecedence of the CH25 chair

The origins of this carefully constructed replica CH25 chair lie within the genius of Hans J. Wegner. He first envisaged this iconic chair silhouette - with a stunning weave and wood combination - in 1950. It was a commissioned furniture design for Carl Hansen & Son.

Wegner (1914-2007) was a globally respected designer of superlative furniture, who has inspired countless other professionals and manufacturers over the decades.

He trained initially as a cabinet-maker, then enrolled at the Copenhagen School of Arts and Crafts. (He was to return to this prestigious institution as a lecturer some years later.)

Wegner’s career also included a period working as a furniture designer for architects Arne Jacobsen and Erik Møller, before establishing his own design enterprise. There, he channelled his immense creative talent and mastery of form into producing in excess of 500 classic seating designs, to earn the colloquial title of “Master of the Chair”.

In 1959 Britain’s Royal Society of Arts awarded Wegner a place amongst the Honorary Royal Designers for Industry.

Among the companies who commissioned Wegner to design furniture for them was Danish industry-leader Carl Hansen & Son. They were delighted with the CH25 chair design. It fits perfectly within their ethos of crafting items of “timeless beauty, comfort, craftsmanship, and sustainability” that customers “fall in love with”.

When Wegner first presented the CH25 chair to his patrons at Carl Hanson, it was considered to be a revolution in seating design, refreshingly simple, yet highly distinctive and inviting to sit on. None of that originality of design has been lost over the half century since or in the high-quality reproduction we offer.

More detail on this aspirational chair

One of the features that sets a CH25 chair design apart from rivals is its intricate backrest weave. This fabulous effect is created by interwinding 400 meters of cord. When the original design was mastered by the craft weavers at Carl Hansen & Son, it would have taken a whole day to lace this one-off design around the quality wood structure.

In our carefully replicated version, skilled craftsmanship is still strikingly evidenced in every detail, ensuring that the CH25 looks intriguing from any angle.

To commission a CH25 chair to your specifications - effortlessly matched to your interior design - it is possible to specify a colour shade for the paper cord weave. You can also request specific wood effects and finishes, including varying degrees of wood grain on display in the finished item.

Please keep in mind that as each CH25 chair we produce is unique to the buyer, orders need to be placed 10 - 14 weeks in advance of delivery.

Each 100% original CH25 will incorporate the casual elegance of the first ever version to create a beautiful but comfortable chair made for everyday use.
