Carl Hansen CH20 Elbow Chair

ch20 - elbow chair
Design Hans Wegner, 1956
Hardwood, upholstered seat
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son

The simple and elegant Elbow Chair embodies Wegner's ideology and spirit for simplicity. Wegner, with his unique understanding of wood, its possibilities and limitations, created many designs each with its own personality yet in a consistent language. In collaboration with Hans Wegner, the Elbow Chair is now being offered to the public for the very first time this year.

Hans J Wegner trained as a cabinet-maker before attending the Copenhagen School of Arts and Crafts, where he later lectured from 1946 to 1953. From 1938 to 1942, he worked as a furniture designer in Arne Jacobsen and Erik Moller´s architectural practice. In 1943, he set up his own office in Gentofte and collaborated with Borge Mogensen in the design of an apartment shown at the 1946 Cabinetmakers´ Exhibition in Copenhagen. Throughout his long career, he has designed furniture extensively for Johannes Hansen and Fritz Hansen. The Royal Society of Arts, London made him an 'Honorary Royal Designers for Industry' in 1959.
