Description

Carl Hansen & Søn’s CH337 dining table is a fine example of the classic, harmonious style of the Danish designer Hans J. Wegner. Designed in 1962, this solid wood table combines an extendable oval-shaped tabletop with slender, tapering legs. Thanks to the wood’s cross grains and delicate design, the joint between the two boards is almost invisible.

The CH337 dining table can accommodate about four people, but you can easily add more people around the table with the separately sold extension leaves. Therefore, the CH337 table makes an ideal choice for both small and large families and for both daily and festive occasions. The table is made by hand in Denmark.

Hans J. Wegner

Hans J. Wegner (1914–2007) is a world-famous Danish designer known especially for his numerous chair designs. Wegner had a special ability to combine functionality and aesthetics; many of his designs are characterized by playful or poetic features.

Born in Tønder, southern Denmark, Wegner developed a fascination for wood as a material already as a child: he enjoyed wood carving and often spent time in museums, looking for inspiration for his sculptures, and he even took up an apprenticeship with master cabinetmaker H. F. Stahlberg at a young age. Although Wegner began his career as a carpenter in the 1930s, in 1936 he decided to study design – a decision the modern design world is very happy for. Wood remained Wegner's favourite material throughout his prolific career, and most of his chairs are made of wood with the natural material often playing the main role in the design.

Wegner considered ergonomics to be one of the most essential aspects of designing a chair – after all, it was a piece of furniture with which the human body could be in contact for long periods of time. During his career spanning several decades, Wegner designed up to 500 different chair models, many of which have become coveted design classics not only due to their beautiful design but also their superb functionality. Perhaps the most famous of his design is the Wishbone chair, which has been in continuous production since 1950.

Wegner is known as one of the pioneers of Danish modernism and one of the key figures of the Golden Age of Nordic design. During his career, he received a multitude of design awards, including the Lunning Prize as well as the Grand Prix in the Milan Triennale in 1951, the Prince Eugen Medal in 1961 and the C. F. Hansen Medal in 1980.
