CH26 armchair, 2016

CH26 arm chair by Hans Wegner for Carl Hansen & Son.

Designed in 1950, the CH26 has a strong affinity with the CH22, the first chair in the exclusive collection that Hans Wegner designed for Carl Hansen and Son. It was also designed alongside such classics as the CH24 (popularly known as the Wishbone chair) and the CH25 lounge chair.

Now produced for the first time by Carl Hansen, the elegant lines and subtle organic curvature of this deceptively simple chair eloquently express Wegner's mastery of design and construction in wood.

The newly-produced CH26 is manufactured to Wegner's original specifications, with solid wood construction and handwoven papercord seat. The backrest is made from form-pressed wood veneer, with distinctive oblong cover caps concealing the join between the chair back and the frame. The corners of the seat frame are precisely finger-jointed and the papercord seat is envelope woven.

The cover cap in the backrest may be selected in either oak or walnut to blend in with the backrest or stand in clear contrast as a design detail that emphasises the construction method.

Carl Hansen opened his furniture workshop in Odense, Denmark in 1908 and soon became known for the high quality of his work.

In the early days, the company produced bespoke furniture – including everything from dining room sets to bedroom suites. As the company grew and times changed, however, it gradually began to produce smaller series of its most popular pieces. This combination of hand craftsmanship and rational series production soon became the firm’s hallmark – and continues to set it apart today.
