Considered Design – The CH88P Chair
We were thrilled to supply the CH88P chair from Carl Hansen to STAC Architecture for the new Nandos’ restaurant in Croydon Colonnades, a stunning space that includes both loose and fixed seating from Hill Cross Furniture.
The CH88P dining chair is an example of Hans J. Wegner’s exploration of materials. The elegant combination of upholstery, wood and steel shows Wegner’s ability to make minimalist forms appear soft and comfortable. Wegner originally developed the CH88P as a prototype with coloured legs for the international Helsingborg Exhibition of 1955 in Sweden. In 2014, the chair went into production for the first time. The CH88P dining chair’s clever construction and stackable quality make it highly functional. The steel frame combined with the wooden backrest and seat provide an elegant design and comfortable form. The CH88P is available with a seat upholstered in leather or fabric, adding even greater versatility and comfort, whereas the CH88T chair is available with an elegant form-pressed seat in veneer.
