Designed by the great Hans Wegner the CH26 has a distinctive appearance that expresses the extent to which every detail has been thought through.
The CH26 was originally designed in 1950,yet the chair had never before been put into production, and no prototypes existed. The CH26’s similarity to the CH22 lounge chair is evident in the armrests and the characteristic, sweeping form of the armrest supports. Wegner designed the CH26 to serve as a dining or desk chair, he therefore gave great consideration to the chair’s proportions, ergonomics and its height in relation to tables.
Carl Hansen & Son have now brought the CH26 design to life and manufactured it in exact accordance with Wegner’s original, hand-drawn sketches. The only exception is that two extra centimetres that have been added to the chair’s height to accommodate today’s higher tables and taller people.
