Hans J. Wegner designed the stackable Elbow Chair in 1956. After producing a single prototype, he set the intricate, production-intensive design aside in his archives, where it remained for nearly half a century.
When Carl Hansen & Søn put the Elbow Chair by Hans J. Wegner into production for the first time in 2005, it quickly established its position as a modern classic, winning the ICFF Editors’ Award in New York the same year. The Elbow Chair’s characteristic steam-bent backrest, crafted from a single piece of solid wood, provides arm and lower back support and enables a variety of seating positions. The shape of the backrest is mirrored in the uniquely constructed upholstered seat, which is crafted from curved, compression-molded veneer and appears to float above the legs.
