Together with Arne Jacobsen and Borge Mogensen, one of the most important Danish designers of the 20th century was undoubtedly Hans J. Wegner, renamed by many as "the master of the chairs"; not surprisingly, he created more than 500 chairs following a perfect balance between form and function.
At 1949 Wegner met Holger, son of Carl Hansen at one of the exhibitions of master carpenters in Copenhagen. Both agreed to collaborate and soon their designs began to be manufactured in series.
I love reading quotes written by the designers themselves in which they talk about their furniture. Of all the phrases, there is one that I especially like: "The chair is the closest thing to people, so it is important that your details are perfect. I feel the details as much as I see them. People touch the furniture, go with their hands " Hans J. Wegner
He cannot be more right. A good piece of furniture is not only visible but also felt with your hands. All their chairs are soft, rounded, pleasant, natural ... An invitation to the touch. These features are perfect for children's furniture.
As a mother of two small children my eyes are especially behind the pieces of children's furniture although I admit that many times I get frustrated when I find furniture with shrill and garish colors that not only do I not like but also make me tired and exhausted.
When Hans J. Wegner had to make a gift of baptism for the son of his great friend and companion Borge Mogensen I can not find a suitable gift and therefore decided to do the same. This is how the chair and table were born CH410 y CH411 that Carl Hansen produces today.
Manufactured in two terminations: Arce or Beech, they are perfect to give a warm touch to children's environments.
