Carl Hansen & Søn CH26 Chair
Carl Hansen & Søn has breathed life into Hans J. Wegner's previously unknown CH26 dining chair design from 1950.
Wegner's CH26 dining chair was designed in 1950 but has never been in production before. The CH26 chair has finally been brought to life in line with Wegner's original sketch. Its curved organic shapes and exceptional craftsmanship make it a true Wegner classic.
The CH26 dining chair is closely related to the CH22 lounge chair. Both have good ergonomics, a sturdy construction and characteristic curved armrest supports. CH26 serves as both a dining chair and desk chair, and Wegner has taken the table height and chair usage carefully into account in its proportions and construction.
CH22 is made of solid wood with a form-pressed veneer back with an organic shape. The chair is available in solid oak and walnut as well as in a combination of these woods with various finishes. The seat is available in natural or black paper cord.

As a driving force behind 'Danish Modern', Hans J. Wegner helped change the general public's view of furniture in the 1950s and 1960s. His passion for designing chairs, more than 500 of them, is recognized worldwide and reflected in his title 'the Master of the Chair'. He is famous for integrating perfectly executed joints with exquisite shapes and combining them with a constant curiosity for materials and deep respect for wood and its natural characteristics. His designs furnish minimalism with organic and natural softness. Hans J. Wegner was born in 1914 in Tønder in Southern Denmark, the son of a shoemaker. At the age of 17, he completed his apprenticeship as a cabinetmaker in the workshop of H. F. Stahlberg where his first designs saw the light of day. At the age of twenty he moved to Copenhagen, Denmark, to attend the School of Arts and Crafts, where he studied from 1936-1938 before embarking on a career as an architect.
