The simple and soft outlines of the CH33 remind us of the classic from the 50s and 60s. The designer Hans J. Wegner was inspired by traditional forms, which he transformed into the timeless CH33.
Many characteristic design aspects are expressed in the CH33 in Hans J. Wegner’s opinion: The simple and elegant chair from Carl Hansen is suitable for the dining room and also as stylish object for all the other living and working rooms of a house – this is only possible because of the numerous different editions of the chair.
The single elements of the CH33 are dominated by curved, organic shapes. The conical legs and the cross parts have the biggest diameter at the stabilizing connection points, getting smaller from there on with elegant outlines.
A classic piece for every place
The slightly inclined legs support the already robust construction of the weightless looking chair of Carl Hansen and also transmits the high stability regarding its appearance. The connections between the backside legs and the back are visible, which is a good example for Wegner’s love for honest design, based on solid handicraft. Seat and backrest of the Carl Hansen CH33 are made of pressed wood laminate.
The classic chair is also available with other fabrics (textile and leather) and with frames of thick woods. Different kinds of wood can also be chosen for the backrest and the seat or for the frame. We will gladly advise you for your individual CH33.Also in our blog:
