Carl Hansen CH22 Lounge Chair Oak
The CH22 was the first model in Wegner’s debut collection created exclusively for Carl Hansen & Søn in 1950 – a series that also included such iconic designs as the CH24, better known as the Wishbone Chair, and the elegant CH25 lounge chair. The designs clearly illustrate Wegner’s ability, even early on in his career, to simplify a construction until it is distilled down to its essence and is full of character.
The CH22 lounge chair has been produced in exact accordance with Wegner’s original sketches, and unites simplicity with absolute comfort. The low lounge chair is made of solid wood with a distinctive form-pressed veneer back with an organic shape. Wegner has focused on sublime craftsmanship, as evident in the woven seat and the refined and ingenious joints, which are structural and ornamental at the same time – a classic Wegner trait.
Signed special edition
Knud Erik Hansen, CEO of Carl Hansen & Son, comments: “The official reintroduction of the CH22 – the first model number in Wegner’s earliest collection for Carl Hansen & Son (which also included the iconic Wishbone Chair) – will take place on 3 June, when we will offer a special signed edition of the chair. We are very pleased to reintroduce the chair that marked the beginning of a very fruitful partnership, and it seems appropriate to celebrate the return of the lounge chair with a unique signed version that can only be ordered on 3 June.”
This chair is engraved with the reissue date and Wegner’s signature, discreetly placed and facing inward. The special edition will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Carl Hansen & Son.
