The CH26 chair by Carl Hansen & Son is a dining chair version of the CH22 lounge chair, an early design by Hans J. Wegner.
The design shares many of the design elements so characteristic of Wegner: organic shapes, bold backs, light-colored wood and woven seats.
The CH26’s striking similarity to the CH22 is evident in the armrests and the characteristic, sweeping form of the armrest supports.
Because Wegner intended for the CH26 to serve as a dining or desk chair, he gave serious consideration to the chair’s proportions and its height in relation to tables, adjusting the CH26’s frame and seat structure to enhance strength and stability.
The CH26 is available in solid oak and walnut as well as a combination of these wood types, with various finishes. The seat is available in natural or black paper cord.
