It originally existed only as a prototype, exhibited at a Swedish design fair in 1955. In 2014, to mark the centenary of Wegner's birth, Carl Hansen launched the CH88 chair for general sale for the first time. Sturdy yet lightweight, the CH88 chair is easy to stack, with straight back legs and an oval wooden seat.
The interplay between industrial steel and the steam-bent hardwood back create a restrained and modern aesthetic while referencing Wegner's insightful craftsmanship.
We have one ex-display CH88 Dining Chair available in stainless steel legs with a smoked oak backrest, and seat upholstered in pale grey Kvadrat Clara fabric.
Please note that ex-display pieces may show some signs of wear. This item is sold as seen and is therefore not available for online purchase. For more information please email [email protected] or call our showroom on 020 7278 8456.
