ch20 elbow chair

Design Hans Wegner, 1956
Hardwood, upholstered seat
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son

An attractive and simple stackable dining chair. The low back and horizontal seat also mean that it makes an excellent desk chair. Hans J. Wegner experimented with new materials such as molded veneer, and the chair's seat is made from 11 layers of this material - giving it perfect stability. The seat is available upholstered in fabric or leather. Designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1956, the chair was first introduced in 2005.

Hans J Wegner trained as a cabinet-maker before attending the Copenhagen School of Arts and Crafts, where he later lectured from 1946 to 1953. From 1938 to 1942, he worked as a furniture designer in Arne Jacobsen and Erik Moller´s architectural practice. In 1943, he set up his own office in Gentofte and collaborated with Borge Mogensen in the design of an apartment shown at the 1946 Cabinetmakers' Exhibition in Copenhagen. Throughout his long career, he has designed furniture extensively for Johannes Hansen and Fritz Hansen. The Royal Society of Arts, London made him an 'Honorary Royal Designers for Industry' in 1959.
