CH327 Dining Table
Made by Carl Hansen & Søn
Hans J. Wegner’s CH327 dining table from 1962 is a good example of how creativity combined with excellent craftsmanship can result in a different and exciting design. CH327 is a solid wood dining table with softened edges and rounded legs that become narrower towards the floor.
The wood’s grains follow the length of the tabletop which itself is supported by 3 distinct rails. Underneath each of these, on each side, is a side rail that continues along the length of the table. Between the side rail and the tabletop there is a space, thus giving the impression that the tabletop is floating.
For support, there is two detachable legs at each end which are connected by a cross-stretcher. The legs and stretchers ensure stability of the table transversely while the side rails do the same in the length. The side rails are joined higher at the table legs and more narrow between them in order to increase leg space for seating.
CH327 is available today in two lengths: 190 cm for six people and 248 cm for eight people. Both tables can be extended at each end with a 40 cm wide extension plate, increasing the number of seats to 10 and 12.
The elegant CH327 Wegner table is suitable to be used as both a dining table and a meeting table. It can also easily be used as a desk.
