CH20 Elbow Chair

  • Seat
  • Frame
The CH20 Elbow Chair is an attractive and simple stackable dining chair. The low back and horizontal seat also mean that it makes an excellent desk chair. Hans J. Wegner experimented with new materials such as molded veneer and the chair's seat is made from 11 layers of this material—giving it perfect stability. The seat is available upholstered in fabric or leather. Designed by Hans Wegner in 1956, the chair was first introduced in 2005.

Online options include chair in a mid-grade leather Thor with choice of Oak frame in a Soap or White Oil finish (see swatch image for color options).

The Soap finish is a natural, minimal finish that requires regular maintenance with a mixture of 100% vegetable-oil based soap flakes and water. It will absorb stains from red wine and markers, however, anyone can restore a table to its original beauty using soap and "elbow grease" without needing to use a professional. Recommended for private homes and design purists.

The White Oil finish is a vegetable-based oil with a white pigment that minimizes the yellowing effects of light. Requires maintenance 2-3 times per year; anyone can restore a table using oil and "elbow grease" without needing to use a professional. As it is more stain resistant than the Soap finish, the White Oil finish is recommended for private homes and public areas.

The CH20 is available in all Carl Hansen fabrics and leathers, with a choice of frame in Beech or Oak in various finishes. Oak has a clearly visible wood structure when painted; beech has minimal structure when painted. Please contact us for a custom quote, upholstery options and additional information.

Measures: 21.3" W x 18.5" D x 28.7" H, 18.1" seat height

Today, the company continues to build on this philosophy by mixing traditional woodworking methods with the latest technology to sustainably produce furniture of lasting value.
