Hans J. Wegner's Wing Chair from 1960 is less prevalent than many of his other furniture designs. The production was at a standstill for several years until it was resumed in 2006. So the older versions are very limited in number. Characteristic for Wegner, also this chair is designed with comfort as first priority. The design with 'wings' and the padded foam seat provides an extremely high level of comfort, where you can get support for both back, shoulders, neck and head.
- Leather or fabric upholstery
- High comfort with support from the wings
- Foam padded seat with the right balance between firmness and softness
- Relaunched in 2006 according to original drawings
Sit in many ways in a Wing Chair
Wegner designed his Wing Chair, so you can sit in several different ways, like Papa Bear Chair or CH07 Shell chair. You can lean against the side or, for example, sit diagonally, and its wings will always give you support. You can truly rest your head and maybe even take a nap, as the top small 'wings' are comfortable to rest your head against.
Wegner always put functionality and comfort first when he made drawings for his world famous design furniture.
You may choose to purchase footstool CH446, if you want even more comfort. It was designed specifically to match the armchair.
An aesthetic chair
The Wing chair is not just comfortable to sit in, it is also a delight to the eye. It can stand alone with space around it and the design will fully come into its own with the beautiful, simple lines. At the same time the chair also fit very well with other furniture, such as part of a seating area with furniture that is also in the 'Danish Modern' style.
The wings give the armchair a sculptural element, in a way which can significantly enhance the décor, both in the home, at the office or in a public space.
Variants in leather and fabric
CH445 Wing Chair is sold in two versions with upholstery in leather or fabric, so you can choose which material best suits your style. The characteristic legs are made of stainless steel, and the front legs are a tad higher than the rear, which Wegner has done to increase the seating comfort of the armchair.

Relaunch in 2006
Hans Wegner designed the Wing armchair in 1960, where it was produced in a limited amount. After this, the production was at a standstill for many years, and it was not until 2006, when the furniture manufacturer Carl Hansen & Søn relaunched it, that the chair again came into production. The Wing Chair is made after his original drawings, and the newer model is thus true to the older and rare edition.
CH445 regained immediately great popularity and has won several national and international design awards.
The Wing Chair in second-hand version
You can buy second-hand designer chairs at sites like eBay or bid on auctions at lauritz.com. However, the Wing Chair is slightly different, since the old models only were produced in a very limited number and therefore will be a rare find, which will influence the price. The amount of second-hand editions from after 2006 are presumably also limited, since it probably are very few who realize that they have made a wrong purchase so soon after. Naturally it occurs, and they are likely to still be in a very good condition as they have only been used for a few years.
