Details

Wegner's 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.

MATERIALS:

  • CH26 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.

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Width: 23.3 inch / 59.2 cm
  • Depth: 20.4 inch / 51.9 cm
  • Height: 31.4 inch / 79.8 cm
  • Seat Height: 17.5 inch / 44.5 cm

HELPFUL NOTES:

  • Oak has a clearly visible wood structure when painted. Oak is available only in black (NCS S9000-N).
  • Oak/walnut is a mixed version combined with a frame in oak and armrest/backrest in walnut.
  • The armrest and backrest always comes in the same type of wood.

Passionate craftsmanship means many things to different people. To Carl Hansen it means everything. It has been so ever since 1908 when Carl Hansen founded his company on a strong belief: outstanding craftsmanship and rational serial production could go hand-in-hand to provide customers with high-quality furniture at a reasonable price. Today they continue to build on this simple but strong idea, combining traditional woodworking techniques with the latest technology to produce furniture of lasting value.

Hans J. Wegner

Denmark, 1914 - 2007

"A chair is to have no backside. It should be beautiful from all sides and angles." – Hans J. Wegner

With his love of natural materials and his deep understanding of the need for furniture to be functional as well as beautiful, Hans J. Wegner made mid-century Danish design popular on an international scale. He began his career as a cabinetmaker in 1931 and subsequently entered the Copenhagen School of Arts & Crafts. After receiving his architectural degree in 1938, he worked as a designer in Arne Jacobsen and Erik Møller’s architectural office before establishing his own office in 1943.

Over the years, he designed over 500 chairs with many different wood types and styles. He became the undisputed master of Danish chair design. His style is based on clean, simple lines and to Wegner a chair was an artwork as much as a functional object. One of his well-known philosophies was that a chair should be beautiful from every angle and that it should not have a backside. Though Wegner designed for series production, all of his work bears the stamp of the traditionally trained craftsman. Wegner’s most famous chairs are the Wishbone, the Wing, the Elbow and the Shell. Most of his designs are produced by Carl Hansen and are still in production today.
