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. One of the striking features of the CH111 chair's design is the back leg which has been twisted through 180 degrees and is used to provide support to the upholstery on the chair's back. The easy solution would have been to weld two pieces of steel but, of course, Wegner never compromised on quality. Fortunately.
