The CH22 lounge chair by Hans J. Wegner was brought back into production by Carl Hansen & Søn in 2016. It features elegant armrests, an envelope-woven paper cord seat, and a distinctive back shell in form-pressed veneer with striking oblong cover caps. The chair’s refined joinery is evident in the finger-jointed corners of the seat frame, with the front legs locking into wooden wedges in a color contrasting with that of the frame. Today, while parts of the process have been modernized, the CH22 is still manufactured as it was when Wegner oversaw initial production at the Hansen family facilities in 1950, with expert hand craftsmanship employed from assembly through to surface treatment and seat weaving. The CH22 lounge chair was introduced as part of a series that marked Wegner’s first masterpieces for Carl Hansen & Søn.

Established in 1997, Cult (formerly Corporate Culture) formed to provide not only exceptional designer furniture, but also a high level of customer service, a combination not yet experienced in the Australian marketplace.

In his endeavours since then, company founder and director Richard Munao has built one of the most comprehensive collections of brand partners in Australia and New Zealand. Cult has grown from its first location in Sydney to now include showrooms in Melbourne, Brisbane and Auckland as well as distributors in Canberra, Adelaide and Perth.

In addition to founding Cult, and supporting strong international partners like Fritz Hansen, Carl Hansen & Son, &Tradition, HAY and Gubi, Richard is actively involved in discovering and mentoring emerging Australian and New Zealand design talent. As founder of Cult’s Design Journey Competition, which began in 2004, Richard gives designers throughout Australia and New Zealand the opportunity to have their designs prototyped and put into production.
