Limited Edition CH26 armchair, 2021

Limited Edition CH26 armchair by  Hans Wegner x Ilse Crawford for Carl Hansen + Son.

In celebration of Hans J Wegner's enduring legacy and more than 70 years of collaboration, Carl Hansen has partnered with designer Ilse Crawford to develop a new limited edition colour palette for the first chairs he created.

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.

The elegant lines and subtle organic curvature of this deceptively simple chair eloquently express Wegner's mastery of design and construction in wood.

The new collaboration marries Wegner's understanding of how furniture is experienced with Crawford's innate sense of the space in which it's placed. These iconic 20th-century designs have been reimagined to create bold, multi-faceted designs celebrating Wegner's pioneering spirit and philosophy of constantly improving, refining and experimenting.

The timeless forms have been accentuated through the use of rich colours inspired by the expressionist work of Per Kirkeby, one of Denmark's most renowned painters. The palette of non-toxic, translucent, water-based paints was selected to add depth and complexity to the chairs, create atmosphere and accentuate the natural wood grain of the iconic designs.

Ilse Crawford was invited to reimagine these designs thanks to her ability to inject any project with insight and relevance. Crawford has managed to elevate the chairs physicality through the use of the new Nordic colours, creating a more sensual expression that will contribute to the creation of warm, relaxed and natural environments.
