CH24 Wishbone Chair by Carl Hansen & Søn

CH24 Wishbone Chair

Carl Hansen & Søn

Designed by Hans J Wegner. Hans J. Wegner designed the Wishbone chair for Carl Hansen & Søn in 1949 with inspiration from ancient Chinese armchairs and it has been in continuous production since 1950. 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.

The chair is a triumph of craftsmanship with a simple design and clean lines. 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.
