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.
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 and oak in a range of finishes. The frame is available in stainless steel,
black powder coating and chrome, and the seat with optional leather or textile upholstery.
Oak has a clearly visible wood structure when painted. Beech has minimal structure when painted.
