CH20 Elbow Chair
from Carl Hansen & Son
designed by Hans Wegner

Though it was introduced in 2005, the Elbow Chair was actually designed by Hans Wegner in 1956. It embodies his desire to create simple objects with form and function combined. Wonderfully suited for use as a dining chair, the Elbow Chair is beautiful enough to enhance any room as a side chair.

The Elbow Chair's frame is made of solid ash, beech, or oak. To enhance the chair's comfort, Wegner added an upholstered seat cushion - and that's where it gets really fun. You can choose from a plethora of fabric and leather colors to perfectly suit your taste.

  • seat height: 18.1" | arm height: 28.1"

About The Manufacturer

Carl HansenThe family-owned Carl Hansen & Son has been producing hand-made pieces since 1908. However, it was not until the late 1940s that the Danish furniture house, under the direction of Holger Hansen (the "Son"), joined forces with Hans Wegner and began a partnership that would help further not just the company but the entire Danish Modern design style. Wegner's unique, modern designs initially tested the company's production team as it had previously dedicated itself to more traditionally home-style pieces. Under Holger Hansen's guidance the partnership flourished; in the 1950s and 1960s the Carl Hansen Company and Hans Wegner both received international acclaim for their boundary-pushing work. One of the first pieces to emerge from this partnership was the Wishbone Chair, one of four chairs that Wegner designed specially for Carl Hansen in 1949. While the company faced difficulties during the second half of the 20th century, including Holger Hansen's sudden death in 1962, Carl Hansen & Son persevered and began the 21st century with a renewed focus, set on bringing Danish Modern furniture back to the center of the design world. Since 2001, when grandson Knud Erik Hansen assumed control of the company, Carl Hansen & Son has expanded in Denmark, continued to produce top-quality, hand-crafted furniture, gone on producing successful Wegner designs, and introduced new, previously unseen pieces from the legendary Danish designer.

Hans WegnerHans Wegner
One of the prime influences in Danish Modern design during its formative years, Hans Wegner first began to design furniture after attending the Carpenters' Guild Furniture Exhibits in Copenhagen, Denmark. Shortly after completing his studies at what is now The Danish Design School, he was tasked by Arne Jacobsen with designing all the furniture of his Arhus City Hall. After working with Jacobsen for a short time, he began designing furniture for the Carl Hansen & Son furniture company in 1949. From that partnership came classics such as the Wishbone Chair, Elbow Chair, Shell Chair, and Wing Chair. Still as fresh now as they were then, these enduring pieces of modern furniture bear testimony to Wegner's craftsmanship and inspiration.
