The CH88T Dining Chair was designed as a prototype by Hans J.Wegner in 1955. It was influenced by Chinese iconography, and Wegner described it as "Minimalism on four legs", although it was never manufactured in his lifetime. It was only in April 2014, to mark the centenary of Wegner's birth, that Carl Hansen & Son  put the chair into production. Made from steel and wood, It comes in a range of natural beech, oak and smoked oak finishes or, alternatively colour stained beech or oak. The leg structure is either stainless steel, chrome or colour powder coated.

Soap - The closest to raw wood; grain and structure are visible; light in colour
Oil - Grain and structure are visible; lighter than soap; creates lustre and brings out contrast in grain and structure. Darkens over time to a rich patina.
White Oil - Grains and structure visible; lightens wood and doesn't darken over time. Brings out contrast in grain and structure.
Coloured Beech - The colours is uniformly smooth and minimal grain is visible when painted
Coloured Oak- The grain has medium visibility when painted, though this is only available in black.
Smoked Oak -  Grain and structure are visible; darker than soap; creates lustre and brings out contrast in grain and structure.
