Ch26 Armchair

by Hans Wegner, from Carl Hansen & Son

ch26 armchair

ch26 armchair

Design Hans Wegner, 1950
Solid wood, paper cord, veneer
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son

The CH26 dining chair was designed in 1950 but has never been in production before. The CH26 chair has finally been brought to life in line with Wegner's original sketch. Its curved organic shapes and exceptional craftsmanship make it a true Wegner classic.

The CH26 dining chair is closely related to the CH22 lounge chair. Both have good ergonomics, a sturdy construction and characteristic curved armrest supports. CH26 serves as both a dining chair and desk chair, and Wegner has taken the table height and chair usage carefully into account in its proportions and construction.

CH22 is made of solid wood with a form-pressed veneer back with an organic shape. The chair is available in solid oak and walnut as well as in a combination of these woods with various finishes. The seat is available in natural or black paper cord. Optional reversible seat cushion in various leather colors can also be specified.

Oak has a clearly visible wood structure when painted. Oak is available only in black (NCS S9000-N). Armrest and backrest always comes in the same type of wood. Oak/walnut is a mix version combined with a frame in oak and armrest/backrest in walnut. Cover cap can be specified in oak or walnut. Chairs specified in Oak black will automatically have matching cover caps.

31.4" h | 20.4" d | 23.3" w | seat: 17.5" h | arms: 26.6" h
optional cushion: 18.9" w | 15.7" d

Hans Wegner

Hans Jørgensen Wegner’s (1914 - 2007) high-quality and thoughtful work contributed to the international popularity of mid-century Danish design. His style is often described as Organic Functionality, a modernist school with emphasis on functionality, arising primarily in Scandinavian countries. In his lifetime, he designed over 500 different chairs, over 100 of which were put into mass production, with many recognizable icons among them. Born to cobbler Peter M. Wegner, he worked as a child apprentice to Master cabinetmaker H. F. Stahlberg. With an affinity for wood, he attended the Danish School of Arts and Crafts and the Architectural Academy in Copenhagen. In 1936, he began studies at what is now The Danish Design School, with O. Mølgaard Nielsen as teacher.
A workshop in Odense, Denmark in 1908, was the birthplace of the Carl Hansen company. With a fast reputation for quality work, Carl Hansen confidently took on large projects like dining room sets and bedroom suites. However, Hansen eventually learned to capitalize on scaled-back versions of his popular sellers, realizing that their strongest asset was its hand craftsmanship and rationality. Carl Hansen invited Hans Wegner to create designs in 1949, launching a mutually beneficial relationship bringing success to the company and exposure to the young Wegner. Wegner was still relatively unknown, but soon gained wide acclaim that continues to today.
