CH88T dining chair by Hans Wegner for Carl Hansen & Son.

To mark the 100th anniversary of Hans J. Wegner's birth, Carl Hansen & Son is launching Wegner's CH88 chair - a 1955 design that has, to date, existed only as a prototype.

The CH88 is versatile 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 CH88 is available in beech, oak, and smoked oak finished in a choice of lacquer, oil, white oil, soap or CHS colours. The frame is available in stainless steel, powder coated and chrome. 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.

Note: The oil oak with black powder coated base is available for quickship delivery.
