Concept

To mark Hans J. Wegner's 100th birthday, Carl Hansen & Son is relaunching a credenza Wegner designed in 1958. The CH825 was originally one of a series of three credenzas launched in 1959 based on Wegner's original drawings. In recent years, the design, particularly the rosewood version, has been a highly coveted furniture piece at auctions.

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. Knud Erik Hansen, CEO of Carl Hansen & Son, comments: "We wanted to observe Wegner's 100th birthday in style and celebrate his approach to detail-oriented craftsmanship – and sought an item of furniture that showcased this. The credenza certainly does. The CH825 also complements our range nicely and is so versatile that it is ideal for a home living room, a hotel lounge, or an office setting.”

The credenza, originally made of rosewood and teak, has today been replaced with walnut and oak. The CH825 frame has been updated and has been drawn in 2 cm from the front and rear edges to allow the credenza to be placed flush against walls with baseboards. The legs are either round wooden ones in solid oak or walnut or steel loops, which are also used in Wegner's CH100 series. The different variants allow the credenza to match a wide range of interior styles and settings.

The low credenza offers an ideal surface for artistically arranging favorite objects, while other items can be stowed behind the elegant roller shutter doors. The interior features adjustable shelves and pullout drawers designed to enable simple installation of additional drawers.

The CH825 is available in either oak or walnut with roller shutter doors. Its interior shelves and pullout drawers are oak. Legs are available in a round wooden variant in solid oak or walnut or as stainless steel loops. The credenza's dimensions are 200 cm (length), 80.8 cm (height) and 49 cm (depth).
