The CH26 Armchair was created by Hans J. Wegner for the Carl Hansen label.
With old school aethetics, skillful use of high-quality wood, and a little imagination on the side, Wegner's creation will add some charm to all living rooms and dining areas. One of Denmark's finest 20th century furniture designers, Wegner bridged the gap between modernist art and industrial functionality, creating works that felt at home in galleries and homes alike. A recipient of prestigious awards like the Prince Eugen Medal and the Eckersberg Medal, he was even honoured by the British Royals, becoming an official 'Royal Designer for Industry'.
Designed for Carl Hansen in Wegner's prime, the CH26 Armchair shows off what made his creations so special. But it wasn't actually released in 1950, when the design was submitted. Instead, Hansen waited until 2016 to release the CH26 Armchair, and it fits perfectly into the modern appetite for Scandinavian elegance. Made from solid oak with a range of veneers available, the chair is a traditional four-legged design, measuring 59.2cm in width, 79.8cm in height, and 51.9cm in depth, while it has a seat height of 44.5cm. Comfortable and modest, but exceptionally crafted, it will bring elite Danish design into your home.
