CH24 Wishbone Chair
Designed by Hans J Wegner.
The very first model Hans J. Wegner designed exclusively for Carl Hansen & Søn in 1949, the CH24 (or Wishbone) Chair, has been in continuous production since its introduction in 1950. It remains the most recognisable chair that we display.
For 2022, the chair is once again available in FSC-certified Teak with an oiled finish, as shown in our main, 'hero' image.
A light, attractive and comfortable dining chair with the characteristic Y-shaped back, which provides back support and stability to the steam-bent top and also inspired the chair's name.
Despite the chair's straightforward appearance it takes more than 100 steps to make one. Amongst other things, the hand-woven seat consists of more than 120 metres of paper cord.
Carl Hansen & Søn use premium quality Ash, beech, mahogany, oak, teak, and walnut. Finishes available are Soap, clear lacquer, oil, white oil, or smoked oil.
Wood is a natural material and may vary depending on the environment - walnut and teak can vary considerably in tone and pattern even within the same log.
Paper cord seat available in natural or black for all options.
Note on colour painted finishes
Oak & Ash have a visible wood structure when painted and are available only in Black. Beech has minimal visible structure when painted and is available in several soft-painted colours as well as black - see separate listing here.
Width 55 cm × Depth 51 cm × Height 75 cm.
Seat height 45 cm
