The CH26 dining chair by Hans J. Wegner finally came to life in 2016. The chair is the reimagined version of a design Wegner had made for Carl Hansen & Søn in 1950.

An elegant dining chair with exceptional craftsmanship

The CH26 dining chair by Hans J. Wegner was developed by Carl Hansen & Søn in close collaboration with the Hans J. Wegner Studio and in exact accordance with Wegner’s original, hand-drawn sketches. The chair is one part of a series of legendary chairs Wegner produced exclusively for Carl Hansen & Søn. The first of this series was the CH22, a wooden lounge chair – Wegner also created a blueprint for translating the lounge chair’s form into a dining chair, the CH26. Yet, he never actually manufactured or produced a mock-up of the design and it remained undiscovered for decades. In 2016, Carl Hansen & Søn brought the CH22 and CH26 designs to life. The CH26 dining chair closely resembles the lounge version with its organic shapes, bold back, light-colored wood and woven seat, and features proportions ideal for longer periods of sitting at a dining table or a desk.

Hans J. Wegner

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 designed more than 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 bringing the inner workings – the soul – of the furniture to the exterior, where the simplicity and functionality can be appreciated.
