CH26 Chair

By Carl Hansen


  • Description

    Although the CH26 design also dates back to 1950, the chair had never before been produced, and no mockups existed. The CH26's striking similarity to the CH22 is evident in the armrests and the characteristic, sweeping form of the armrest supports. Because Wegner intended for the CH26 to serve as a dining or desk chair, he gave serious consideration to the chair's proportions and its height in relation to tables, adjusting the CH26's frame and seat structure to enhance strength and stability. The CH26 design has now finally come to life, manufactured in exact accordance with Wegner's original, hand-drawn sketches, the only exception being two extra centimeters that have been added to the chair's height to accommodate today's higher tables and people.
