Carl Hansen & Søn



To mark the 100th anniversary of Hans J. Wegner's birth, Carl Hansen & Søn is launching Wegner's CH88 chair - a 1955 design that has, to date, existed only as a prototype.

Designed by Hans J. Wegner



The CH88 is versatile both in terms of its appearance and usability thanks to its numerous finish, frame, and room placement options. Characteristically, the upper structure features a steam-bent wooden backrest for back support, with slight curvatures of the backrest's ends providing a natural resting place for the arms.

The steel frame, with straight back legs, supports an oval-shaped wooden seat. This blend of materials, combined with a minimalist design, results in a light, organic, industrial expression. And the new, stackable design offers a valuable benefit.

The CH88 is available in beech, oak and smoked oak in a range of finishes. The frame is available in stainless steel, chrome and powder coating in various colors, and the seat with optional leather or textile upholstery.
