CH20 Elbow Chair

Carl Hansen & Søn

Designed by Hans J Wegner. An attractive and simple stackable dining chair designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1956. When Carl Hansen & Søn put the CH20 Elbow Chair into production for the first time in 2005, it quickly established itself as a modern classic, winning the ICFF Editors' Award in New York.

The Elbow Chair's signature steam-bent backrest, crafted from a single piece of solid wood, provides elbow and lower back support and enables a variety of sitting positions. The frame is available in either solid Beech or Oak in a variety of finishes.

Upholstery options are priced in groups - see a list under the Details tab below. Please get in touch for samples or to discuss, we're always happy to help.
