Credenza 1958, Hans Wegner
Carl Hansen & Son, the only licensed manufacturer of furniture designed by Danish great Hans J. Wegner, has been marking the 100th birthday of the designer with a series of reissues and commemorative editions of Wegner pieces. The company’s latest Wegner reissue is the CH825 Credenza, an exquisitely detailed and elegantly innovative design that dates back to 1958.
Of the streamlined, low-profile storage piece, Carl Hansen & Son notes that, “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.” Originally produced in rosewood and teak, the updated version has been remade in walnut and oak, and stays true to Wegner’s original drawings. The CH825 Credenza is the latest in a year-long series of new launches or limited edition reissues of Wegner furniture, which has included an introduction of the CH88 Chair, a 1955 prototype never previously produced, and newly-upholstered versions of Wegner’s famous Shell, Wing, and Wishbone chairs.
