CH26 Armchair by Carl Hansen & Søn

CH26 Armchair

Carl Hansen & Søn

Designed by Hans J Wegner. Wegner created a working drawing for translating the CH22 Lounge Chair’s form into a dining chair, the CH26. Yet he never actually manufactured a mock-up of the armchair and it remained unknown to the public for decades. In 2016 – the same year as the reintroduction of the CH22 – Carl Hansen & Søn brought the CH26 design to life. Both have good ergonomics, a sturdy construction and characteristic curved armrest supports.

Available in Oak, Walnut or an Oak/Walnut mix which features the frame in Oak and the armrests and backrest in Walnut.
NB Oak has a clearly visible wood structure when painted.

CH26 Leather Cushion available separately - please enquire for details.
