A clean and wet towel should be used to wipe the surface of any product that is exposed to ordinary or corrosive liquid within 10 minutes. A piece of dry cloth should then be applied to absorb the residual moisture. Please try not to apply a detergent with a high concentration of alcohol or a bleaching effect to clean household products. If you have no alternative, you must wipe the detergent off immediately after cleaning to remove corrosive liquid residue.

What are the differences between the CH88P and CH88T Chairs by Carl Hansen?
Designed by Hans Wegner the CH88 Chair is available in two versions. The CH88P is the version of the CH88 Chair with an upholstered seat (in leather or fabric). Conversely, the CH88T is the version of the dining chair with the form-pressed wood veneer seat (without upholstery).
Why is the CH88 by Hans Wegner a good dining chair?
The Carl Hansen CH88 Chair will tuck under most dining tables at 70.5cm tall (average table height is 75cm). The seat height is 45.5cm, providing a roomy 29.5cm for thighs. The width is a generous 57cm too for additional comfort and lastly, the CH88 is stackable – perfect for smaller spaces.
Are Hans Wegner's CH88 Chairs by Carl Hansen comfortable?
The CH88 Upholstered Dining Chair is comfy, supportive of the mid-back and easy to sit on for moderate periods of time. Not only this, but the CH88 is elegantly sculptural. Its stylish combination of upholstery, wood and steel demonstration Wegner’s talent for making minimalist designs soft and comfortable.
How is the CH88P Seat Upholstered Chair Manufactured?
Carl Hansen makes the CH88 by hand in Denmark. The process involves steam bending, hand sawing and sanding a single piece of Beech or Oak for the backrest. Whilst, veneering, cutting and sanding several layers of wood to ensure the seat achieves its robust and slimline profile. The CH88P version of the chair features upholstery on its seat too for extra comfort. Finally, a master craftsman fixes both the seat and backrest to a sturdy steel frame to complete the chair's construction.
Will the Carl Hansen CH88 Chair go out of style?
Hans Wenger’s CH88T and CH88P Chairs were first seen in 1955 at the international Helsingborg Exhibition in Sweden. The CH88 is still true to the original design, remaining almost completely unchanged. Mid-century furniture remains popular thanks to its timeless yet modern aesthetic and simple materials. This makes the CH88 one of the most popular Carl Hansen chairs in the UK.
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 Lounge Chair, and many more. Wegner is a meticulous craftsman and his furniture is a functional, stylish, and timeless.
