The Wegner CH36 Chair was designed in 1962 and is characterized by its simple design and excellent back support. It is a small chair with vertical legs, a plain back and its seat of rope woven into a simple pattern. Its modest exterior tends towards the anonymous. The delicate appearance might lead to the false conclusion that CH 36 is not a sturdy chair. It was, therefore, decided to have the chair tested thoroughly at The Technological Institute of Denmark before its release. History says that the chair went through the required 60.000 rockings without problems, but that the staff forgot to turn off the machinery before going on weekend. On Monday morning they found the test equipment broken down while the chair still was in one piece.
Note: Lacquer colors are on beech, which shows very little wood grain.
