Description

Midcentury Danish design master and “chair-maker of chair-makers” Hans Wegner never saw quality and quantity as mutually exclusive. An innovator of organic functionalism, he designed more than 400 chairs in his lifetime, many of which are heralded as design icons. His CH88 Stacking Chair (1955) is but one of them, fusing warm wood and industrial steel in one unified form. It combines a steam-molded wooden back with upturned ends to provide a natural resting place for your arms and an oval wooden seat on a tubular steel frame. Carl Hansen & Søn launched the CH88 Stacking Chair in 2014 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Wegner’s birth. Stacks up to four high. Made in Denmark.
