A comfortable and beautiful clean-cut dining chair, the design of which clearly shows how Wegner was inspired by Shaker craftsmanship.
Hans J. Wegner's clean-cut CH36 dining chair is as comfortable to sit in as it is beautiful to behold.
Simple, functional, and thoughtfully made, this 1962 Wegner design demonstrates the influence of Shaker furniture principles and craftsmanship on Wegner's aesthetic.
Of course, the master of chair design infused the CH36 dining chair with his own subtle touches. The legs taper off slightly toward the floor, creating a light, elegant appearance. The top of the curved back is more rounded than the bottom, enhancing back support.

As a driving force behind 'Danish Modern', Hans J. Wegner helped change the general public's view of furniture in the 1950s and 1960s. His passion for designing chairs, more than 500 of them, is recognized worldwide and reflected in his title 'the Master of the Chair'. He is famous for integrating perfectly executed joints with exquisite shapes and combining them with a constant curiosity for materials and deep respect for wood and its natural characteristics. His designs furnish minimalism with organic and natural softness. Hans J. Wegner was born in 1914 in Tønder in Southern Denmark, the son of a shoemaker. At the age of 17, he completed his apprenticeship as a cabinetmaker in the workshop of H. F. Stahlberg where his first designs saw the light of day. At the age of twenty he moved to Copenhagen, Denmark, to attend the School of Arts and Crafts, where he studied from 1936-1938 before embarking on a career as an architect.
