The CH20 Elbow Chair is a simple stackable dining chair and a great example of how Hans J. Wegner was way ahead of his time when designing wooden furniture. The low back and horizontal seat also mean that it makes an excellent desk chair.

Designed in 1956, the chair was so complicated to make at that time with the given manufacturing techniques that only a single prototype was produced. The unique seat base, seeming to float above the legs, is made from 11-ply laminate and provides exceptional stability without the usage of any crosspieces underneath. The characteristic rounded backrest, steam bent and crafted from one piece of solid wood, enables a variety of seating positions. It also allows for support for the arms which increases the comfort and the ability to sit in the chair for a long time.
