Carl Hansen weaving demonstration

Visitors to our Upper Street shop on the morning of Friday 10th June were lucky enough to observe one of the many highly skilled processes involved in the making of each Carl Hansen + Son chair. 

Carl Hansen weaving demonstration

Carl Hansen’s master weaver Benny was in-store to offer a live demonstration of the craft of paper cord weaving, working to create a new seat for an oak-framed CH22 chair by Hans Wegner.

The CH22 lounge chair occupies a very special position in the history of Danish design, being part of the debut collection that Wegner designed for Carl Hansen + Son in the 1950s, alongside such classics as the CH24 Wishbone chair and the CH25 lounge chair.

The CH22 is now being reissued by Carl Hansen along with its companion, the CH26 armchair. Both have been produced to Wegner’s original specification and are now available to view and order at our shop and showroom.

Visitors to the shop during the demonstration received a complementary Carl Hansen print as a memento.

Many thanks to Benny and Carl Hansen + Son for a remarkable illustration of the craft, expertise and heritage that are integral to each Carl Hansen chair.
