Additional Information

Description

A Danish design classic.

In 1944, Danish designer Hans Wegner began a series of chairs that were inspired by portraits of Danish merchants sitting in Ming Chairs. One of these chairs was the Wishbone Chair (1949), also known as the “Y” or “CH-24,’ which has been produced by the Danish firm Carl Hansen & Søn since 1950. The son of a shoemaker, Wegner was trained as a cabinetmaker before attending the School of Arts and Crafts in Copenhagen, after which he began his career as an architect. Just three years later, Wegner started his own design office, and his work soon caught the eye of Carl Hansen. The light, sculptural Wishbone Chair was exactly what the Hansen company was looking for to supplement the heavier forms that were popular at the time. Using the best natural materials and refined steam-bent methods, Wishbone is made to last and offer outstanding comfort for generations. This is the authentic Wishbone Chair from Carl Hansen & Søn. Made in Denmark.



A testament to craftsmanship.

Challenging to produce, each chair requires more than 100 individual manufacturing steps, most of which are carried out by hand and require perfect craftsmanship and an intimate knowledge of wood joinery. Even today, its seat is still handwoven from 395 feet of paper cord, a durable material developed during WWII as a substitute for jute.

  • This is the authentic Wishbone Chair, made in Denmark.
  • This handcrafted, sculptural form takes 100 steps to make.
  • Steam-bent backrest elegantly wraps around to also support the arms.
  • Beautiful handwoven seat made from 395 feet of paper cord.
