Hans J. Wegner, 1950 | 2016


Designed in 1950 and manufactured to Wegner’s exacting original specifications, the CH22 is a low armchair with a solid wood construction featuring Wegner’s characteristically shaped armrests and a paper-cord seat in what is known as an envelope weave. The chair’s refined joinery is evident in the finger-joined corners of the seat frame, with the forelegs locking into wooden wedges in a color contrasting that of the frame. The distinctive back shell in form-pressed veneer features oblong cover caps as a striking detail in either oak or walnut.
