CH 56/CH 58 BARSTOOL by CARL HANSEN & SON
Description: An upholstered bar stool that's perfect for kitchens with open space. The seat is available upholstered in fabric or leather. Designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1985.
The "CH 56" and "CH 58" are perfect for the modern open kitchen space. They also offer obvious solutions for the contract market, especially for bar and dining areas.
Both are light barstools and thereby easy to move around the room. The rounded lines and mix of three materials-- wood, steel, and leather --give the stool a very modern expression.
Wegner is considered one of the world's most outstanding furniture designers. He was one of the motive forces behind the Danish Modern movement, which did much to change people's view of furniture in the 1950's and 60's.
Wegner developed his first design at the age of 17 as an apprentice to a carpenter. At the age of 20, he studied at the institution now known as The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design. In 1940, he initiated a joint project with Arne Jacobsen and Erik Moller, and in 1943 he opened his own design studio.
His designs retain relevance today, and his sense of details is a source of constant wonder. Among Wegner's recognitions are the Lunning Prize and International Design Awards. His works are exhibited at major international museums, including the MoMA in New York and Die Neue Sammlung in Munich.
Finishes: Available in a variety of fabrics or leather. Base available in oak or walnut in a variety of finishes.
