CH22 Lounge chair - Signed Edition

By Carl Hansen


  • Description

    Only one left in stock

    Collectors and design enthusiasts will have the opportunity to acquire a unique Wegner chair when Carl Hansen & Son offers a special edition of the elegant CH22 in soap-treated oak to mark the lounge chair's reintroduction. The official 3rd June launch date will be engraved with Wegner's signature and the reissue date and arrive with a certificate of authenticity from Carl Hansen & Son.

    Refined joinery
    The CH22 lounge chair, produced fully in accordance with Wegner's original working drawings, unites simplicity with absolute comfort. The chair has a complex structure, rich in detail and refined carpentry, with a solid wood frame and a distinctively moulded, organically shaped back shell in form-pressed veneer. Wegner's focus on sublime craftsmanship is evident in the finger-jointed corners of the seat frame, with the forelegs locking into wooden wedges in a colour contrasting that of the frame - as well as in the generous armrests and the envelope-woven paper cord seat.
