How long has the CH22 lounge chair been in production?
The CH22 lounge chair was first designed by Hans Wegner in 1950 and has been manufactured by Carl Hansen & Son using the same principles of craftsmanship since 2016. In the intervening years, precision manufacturing techniques have improved so that the front legs of the chair now have the same profile as the back legs, as Wegner originally intended. The chair remains a popular choice for both residential and commercial settings thanks to its timeless design and enduring quality.
What are some of the distinctive features of the CH22 lounge chair?
The Wegner CH22 lounge chair is distinguished by its large, wooden back with visible cover caps. On closer inspection, additional Wegner signature details become apparent, such as the arm support embracing the side stretcher and the seat frame only expanding to full width under the armrest. In the back, the seat's paper cords are led down around the seat frame and through a horizontal groove in the back rail. There are also two refined joints on the front of the seat where the front legs are led up through the hand-assembled corners.
Why was the CH22 lounge chair out of production for several decades?
The CH22 lounge chair was out of production for several decades because Carl Hansen & Søn stopped manufacturing it. The company started producing the chair again in 2016, but the production process has been modernized. Today, the CH22 is still manufactured using the same principles of craftsmanship as when Hans J. Wegner first designed it. However, modernization has improved precision so that the front legs 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.
What is the Wegner's CH22 made out of?
The Wegner CH22 is made out of wood, with a paper cord seat. The frame options include: soaped oak, lacquered and oiled oak or walnut, white oiled oak and black oak. The paper cord seat comes in natural or black.
What is the price range for the CH22 lounge chair?
The price for the original authentic Carl Hansen made CH22 Lounge Chair starts from around £2500. The CH22 Lounge Chair is a high-end, original Hans Wegner product. The CH22 Chair is made with quality materials and construction, and its sleek design makes it a popular choice for contemporary homes and businesses.
Hans Wegner is a Danish design icon famous for his collaborations with Carl Hansen and the CH24 Wishbone Chair. Alongside this he is responsible for the CH07 Shell Chair, the CH25.... read more
