The Carl Hansen CH322 Dining Table, designed by Hans J. Wegner for Carl Hansen, exudes elegance with a simple yet refined form. It successfully exhibits Wegner's experimentation with stainless steel, evident through the detailing around the top of the base. This steel form strengthens the tabletop's crisp edges and acts to unite the legs for a bold statement, stretching around either side of the long and side edges.
Architectural detailing plays a prominent attribute in the frame design, supporting the thick tabletop. Along the top of the tabletop a separation line is visible which opens out for each extension leaf to drop into its centre (if required).
Two alternative tables are available, both extending to different lengths. One has hardware accommodating a maximum of two extension leaves and one supporting wooden leg, extending up to 280cm in width. The second has hardware accommodating a maximum of four extension leaves, extending up to 400cm in width. This includes four supporting wooden legs.
Each wooden support leg is placed in the centre of the extended table. When not in use this is discreetly secured to the underneath of the tabletop, forming part of a compact design within the extension mechanism.
The tabletop can be selected from soaped or oiled oak and the extension leaves in grey or black MDF or soaped or oiled oak. Each extension leaf measures 95cm x 60cm.
PLEASE NOTE If more than one extension leaf is requested, only one of the solid wood extension leaves is produced from the exact same wood as the tabletop.
Oil - Grain and structure are visible; lighter than soap; creates lustre and brings out contrast in grain and structure. Darkens over time to a rich patina.
Soap- The closest to raw wood; grain and structure are visible; light in colour.
