Design Hans Wegner, 1962
Hardwood, cord caning
CH 36 dates back to 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. Nevertheless Wegners conscious design is obvious in a small way. The legs taper off slightly towards the floor and this detail is repeated on the rear legs from the seat upwards to make the appearance lighter and more elegant. The curve of the horizontal back"s top edge is made narrower than its lower edge to improve the support.
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 the weekend. On Monday morning they found the test equipment broken down while the chair still was in one piece.
