The essence of classic design
Hans J. Wegner designed the stackable Elbow Chair in 1956. After crafting two prototypes, he set the production-intensive chair design aside in his archives, where it remained for nearly half a century until it was brought back to life in 2005.
When Carl Hansen & Søn put the CH20 Elbow Chair by Hans J. Wegner into production for the first time in 2005, it quickly established a position as a modern classic, winning the ICFF Editors’ Award in New York in the same year.
The Elbow Chair’s characteristic steam-bent backrest, crafted from a single piece of solid wood, provides elbow and lower back support and enables a variety of sitting positions. The chair’s unique rail construction under the seat in form-pressed veneer adds optimal stability in combination with a light and floating expression.
