Chair in organic, soft shapes
The CH88 P was reissued by Carl Hansen in 2014 to mark the 100th birthday of designer Hans J. Wegner. The iconic chair existed until then only as a prototype, but its shape was nevertheless known beyond the borders of Denmark. With the CH88 P, Carl Hansen has created a chair whose design language is characteristic of the designer: Wegner was also inspired by organic, soft forms for the classic chair designed in 1955, which he transformed into a timeless and iconic design.
Backrest in steam-bent wood
The CH88 P is available in many different finishes, allowing it to be used in a wide variety of settings, both in terms of its appearance and its potential uses. The characteristic backrest made of steam-bent wood not only supports the back, but also provides a natural resting place for the arms thanks to the slightly curved ends.
Chair classic as a new edition
The oval-shaped seat shell of the CH88P rests on a steel frame with straight legs. This special combination of materials in conjunction with a minimalist design language creates a light-looking chair in which natural forms are combined with technical precision. Thanks to its stackable design, the new edition of the Carl Hansen CH88P offers an additional advantage.
The classic chair from Carl Hansen is available in beech or oak in a variety of finishes. The frame is offered in stainless steel, in black (powder coated) and chrome. The seat shell can be ordered with a variety of upholstery or leather covers upon request.
