The CH22 lounge chair was part of Wegner’s debut collection for the Danish company, and was first released in 1950 amongst other models such as the iconic CH24. Manufactured to Wegner’s original specifications, the CH22 is a small armchair with a solid wood construction. It features flat armrests to make it a comfortable chair, with rounded edges and the designer’s characteristic curving supports, and a handwoven seat made from paper cord.
The chair’s backrest is made from form-pressed wood veneer, and features oblong cover caps over the join between the back and the frame. It is perfect amoung your living room chairs.
Through his design process for the CH22, Wegner also developed a blueprint for a dining chair with the model number CH26. This black designer chairs could be used either as dining chair or as a modern side chair.
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Wegner’s birth in 2014, Carl Hansen & Søn reinstated the designer’s 1950 logo for the company, which features the initials CHS in swirling white lettering on a white background. The CH22 and CH26 will be unveiled at the Carl Hansen & Son showroom in New York during this year’s NYCxDesign event.
