CH24 Wishbone Chair from Carl Hansen & Son
designed by Hans Wegner
Designed by Hans Wegner in 1949 and produced without interruption since 1950, the Wishbone Chair is a masterpiece of craftsmanship - and an icon of the design style which came to be known as Danish Modern. The CH24 Chair, known as the Wishbone Chair because of the shape of its back, is a lithe, light chair that is wonderfully suited for use as a dining chair. The Wishbone Chair features curved rear legs and a steam-bent, semicircular top rail that dually functions as backrest and arms.
The Wishbone Chair's frame is made of solid ash, beech, oak, or walnut. The seat is hand woven from nearly 400 feet of paper cord that can last up to 50 years.

About The Manufacturer
One of the prime influences in Danish Modern design during its formative years, Hans Wegner first began to design furniture after attending the Carpenters' Guild Furniture Exhibits in Copenhagen, Denmark. Shortly after completing his studies at what is now The Danish Design School, he was tasked by Arne Jacobsen with designing all the furniture of his Arhus City Hall. After working with Jacobsen for a short time, he began designing furniture for the Carl Hansen & Son furniture company in 1949. From that partnership came classics such as the Wishbone Chair, Elbow Chair, Shell Chair, and Wing Chair. Still as fresh now as they were then, these enduring pieces of modern furniture bear testimony to Wegner's craftsmanship and inspiration.
