To mark the 100th anniversary of Hans J. Wegner's birth, Carl Hansen & Son is launching Wegner's CH88 chair - a 1955 design that had, to date, existed only as a prototype.
The CH88 is a versatile chair 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 CH 88 is available in beech and oak in lacquer, oil, white oil, soap or CHS colours. When painted Oak has a clearly visible wood structure; Beech has a minimal structure. Oak is only available in black. Beech available in all CHS colours.
The seat is made from CMHR flame retardant cold foam available upholstered in a variety of Carl Hansen fabrics or leathers. See downloadable specification sheet for details of the relevant Kvadrat and Gabriel fabric collections.
Samples of the rull range of Carl Hansen & Son upholstery fabrics are available to view at our shop and showroom.
Please see 'related products' for non-upholstered model.
Please note: Price shown for stainless steel frame. Chrome and coloured powder coated frame finishes also available - please enquire for further information and pricing.
