The CH25 lounge chair, like many of Hans J. Wegner’s other iconic designs, is ambitious and bold in its sculptural shape. It also caused a stir, however, with its materials. Wegner’s choice of woven paper cord – a wartime substitution material – for the seat and back was unheard of at the time. But Wegner liked the look and durability of the material, and so have generations of his fans.

The CH25 lounge chair has remained extremely popular and in continuous production ever since: a testament to Wegner’s visionary approach.

It takes a skilled craftsman 10 hours to complete one chair seat and back by hand, using about 400 meters of paper cord and a double weaving technique that creates the chair’s unique pattern – the striking result of this detailed process is a unique chair that is equally beautiful and inspiring from all angles.

At Carl Hansen & Søn, we believe that iconic design is a combination of simplicity, aesthetics and functionality brought to life through skillful work with the highest quality materials. 

For over 100 years, we have specialized in providing the outstanding furniture craftsmanship that brings visionary design concepts to life. 

Our story began in 1908 when Danish cabinetmaker Carl Hansen opened a small furniture workshop on the Danish island of Funen. Since then, the company’s success has  depended on two core ideas: an uncompromising  commitment to the finest craftsmanship, and alliances with exceptional designers who continually reinvent and refine the concept of modern design.

Carl Hansen & Søn’s evolution has been deeply influenced by our long-term relationship with one of the greatest designers of all time: Hans J. Wegner.
