CH825 CREDENZA by CARL HANSEN & SON
Description: Wegner's Credenza from 1958 is based on his original drawings, and was originally one of a series of three credenzas.
Although it looks simple, the credenza features an advanced design with roller shutter doors, requiring double sides and rear panel, between which the roller shutters run on a track and disappear when opened.
The interior features adjustable shelves and pull-out drawers designed to enable simple installation of additional drawers.
The credenza, originally made of rosewood and teak, has today been replaced with walnut and oak. Its interior shelves and pull-out drawers are oak. The legs are either round wooden ones in solid oak or walnut or steel loops, which are also used in Wegner's "CH100" series.
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 oak or walnut. Base available in wood (rounded legs) or stainless steel (loops).
