Affectionately known as the Mama Bear Chair, the CH78 Lounge Chair by Hans J. Wegner was originally introduced in 1954 as an extension
of his CH71 Chair design. An antidote to the often-heavy lounge chairs of his time, Mama Bear’s sculptural silhouette
is defined by a series of inviting curves that offer up a warm embrace.
A lesson in form and function, craftsmanship and courage, the CH78 Lounge Chair, balances soft,
supportive curves with dynamic geometric shapes. The result is a sculptural piece of functional design that is equally at home in a living room
as it is in a hotel lobby.
Frame, armrests, and legs are crafted for stability from solid FSC™-certified wood.
An optional headrest in leather or corresponding fabric completes the design. This neckpiece is sold separately.
Legs and armrests in solid oak or walnut.
The upholstery comes in various kinds of fabric or in protected leather, semi aniline leather or aniline leather.
Height: 106 cm
Widht: 84 cm
Depth: 80 cm
Height armrests: 62.5 cm
