CH445 Wing Chair | Hans Wegner | Carl Hansen & Søn

Hans J. Wegner’s CH445 chair, also known as the Wing Chair, is a fully upholstered easy chair that rests on a stainless steel frame. The armchair, with its distinctive lines and pleasant seating comfort, is a fine example of how a high-backed armchair should be according to Wegner.

Under the upholstery there is a solid beech frame which gives the chair strength and durability. The precise shape and density of the upholstery are carefully chosen so that the chair can best support all parts of the body.

The seat and backrest are constructed to provide comfortable support for the back, shoulders, neck and head in different sitting positions.

The slender, round stainless steel of the frame has front legs that tilt slightly forward while the rear legs protrude far backwards so that the chair, despite its reclining position, will not tip over.

Four small steel cone shaped elements link the upper part of the chair with the frame. Each leg has a steel shoe attached to prevent the chair from sliding.

The Wing Chair was designed in 1960 when only a few examples were produced. Carl Hansen & Søn relaunched the chair in 2006. The CH445 Wing Chair is available with the matching CH446 foot stool, for added comfort.
