Carl Hansen & Son

CH22 Lounge Chair


The CH22 Lounge Chair, first manufactured in 1950, was part of Hans J. Wegner’s debut collection for Carl Hansen & Son. After being out of production for several decades, Carl Hansen & Son brought it back in 2016. The chairs were all made of wood with seats in paper cord instead of upholstery. They are among the designer’s most well-known and sought-after creations today.

Although the production naturally has been modernized, today, CH22 is still manufactured using the same principles of craftsmanship as when Wegner followed and participated in manufacturing the first examples at Carl Hansen’s family-owned workshop in 1950. In the meantime, modernization has improved precision so that the front legs, which were originally manufactured round, can now have the same profile as the back legs of the chair. This means that they are now made as Wegner had originally drawn them on his technical drawing which was that the legs should be brought up through the seat frame and locked using wedges.

Add comfort with the optional CU CH22 Lounge Chair Cushion.
