The UK architect John Pawson approached The Cale Schiang Partnership in the mid 1990’s for assistance in sourcing a suitable high stool for use in the First Class lounges for Cathay Pacific at Chek Lap Kok Airport Hong Kong.
On approaching the Wegner Studio, Marianne Wegner proposed a classic, functional Wegner design. The stool though simple in appearance was a cleverly constructed with four wooden legs held in place by a stainless steel ring on which to rest the feet, topped by a luxuriously padded leather seat. The stool was proto-typed by the Company most suited to the task Getama A/S who produced the first production run of 80 stools for the Pawson Project which was completed in 1998.
Stool CH58 together with the original higher version CH56 were subsequently introduced by Carl Hansen and Son, initially as an exclusive design for Bulthaup only to sell alongside their kitchens.
