The CH29 chair, also known as “The Sawbuck Chair” due to the shape of the chairs legs resembling that of the simple sawbucks or saw horses traditionally used by carpenters and woodcutters, was originally designed for Carl Hansen & Søn by Wegner in 1952. It was taken out of production in the 1970’s and it was Wegner’s daughter Marianne Wegner who suggested it be reintroduced 20 years later. The CH29 chair became an immediate success due to its simple construction, which provides great comfort while still being visually unique.
The CH29 is closely associated with Wegner’s CH28 lounge chair and is also available in a similar mix-version with seat and back in walnut and legs in oak.
The seat is available upholstered in fabric or leather.
The CH29 chair is an exceptionally comfortable dining chair that, despite its light appearance, is extremely stable. The design, reminiscent of sawbucks, is closely related to Hans J. Wegner’s easy chair, CH28. The CH29 chair is available in solid beech and solid oak.
The CH29 is also available in a version combining an oak structure with a back and seat in walnut. (CH29T)
