A direct translation to English reads "is this the chair". Can someone explain this?

I do not understand your question. A direct translation of what? Nothing I see above translates to what you wrote.

Why van is mandatory?

Because van can only be excluded in sentences that discuss "what" (more or less). This sentence describes "where" the chair is.
