Description
Hans Wegner CH25, manufactured by Carl Hansen & Son. The solid oak frame has been waxed and polished. Original papercord weaving in good vintage condition. Minor wear / patina consistent with age and usage to backrest.

Designed in 1950, the CH25 Lounge Chair was one of the first four chairs Hans J. Wegner created for Carl Hansen & Søn. The CH25 lounge chair has remained in continuous production since its inception.

Like the Wishbone Chair, it is ambitious and bold in its sculptural shape. Wegner's choice of woven paper cord for the seat and back was unconventional. Paper cord was being used as a substitution material during the war and had not been associated with fine furniture.

It takes a skilled craftsman 10 hours to hand weave the seat and back of this chair in a unique pattern using approx. 400 meters of paper cord.
