The CH29 chair, also known as 'The Sawbuck Chair' due to the shape of the chair legs resembling the simple sawbucks or saw-horses traditionally used by carpenters and woodcutters, was originally designed for Carl Hansen & Son by Wegner in 1952. It was taken out of production in the 1970s and it was Wegner's daughter Marianne Wegner who suggested it be reintroduced 20 years later. The CH29 chair became an immediate success due to its simple construction, which provides great comfort while still being visually unique.
