The essence of classic design

When Carl Hansen & Søn put the CH20 Elbow Chair by Hans J. Wegner into production for the first time in 2005, it quickly established a position as a modern classic, winning the ICFF Editors’ Award in New York in the same year. The Elbow Chair’s characteristic steam-bent backrest, crafted from a single piece of solid wood, provides elbow and lower back support and enables a variety of sitting positions. The chair’s unique rail construction under the seat in form-pressed veneer adds optimal stability in combination with a light and floating expression

Designer
Among Danish furniture designers, Hans J. Wegner is considered one of the most creative, innovative and prolific. Often referred to as the master of the chair, Wegner created almost 500 chairs in his lifetime – many of them considered masterpieces. He is probably best known for his iconic Wishbone Chair which has been in continuous production since 1950. The core of Wegner’s legacy is his focus on showing the inner soul of furniture pieces through a simple and functional exterior.
