CH 110 OFFICE DESK by CARL HANSEN & SON
Description: In 1970, Hans J. Wegner came up with an exclusive office concept consisting of a desk and accompanying chair, plus a slender easy chair. The series represents some of Wegner's very finest steel-framed furniture.
The table is completely different to Wegner's previous designs; the tabletop is streamlined and rests lightly on shiny legs. Plus, the table's symmetrical drawers feature handmade mortise and tenon joints, and feature stand-out minimalist handles.
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.
