With a form that is uniquely its own, the iconic CH24 Wishbone Chair by Hans J. Wegner holds a special place in the world of modern design.
When designing the CH24, Wegner chose to combine the back- and armrest into a single piece. To give stability to the steam-bent top and ensure comfortable support, Wegner developed the characteristic Y-shaped back that the Wishbone Chair is named after.
More than 100 steps are required to manufacture each Wishbone Chair, most of which are carried out by hand. The hand-woven seat alone takes a skilled craftsman about an hour to create, using approximately 120 meters of paper cord, the impressive durability and stability of which makes the chair both strong and long-lasting. The Wishbone Chair offers comfort and stability as well as satisfying aesthetic desires for distinctive, elegant form.
Over time, the Wishbone Chair has gained recognition as the ideal chair, capturing the essence of modern Danish design.
The new Limited Edition colour palette by Ilse Crawford launched March 2022 is available throughout 2022 and celebrates Carl Hansen & Søn and Hans J. Wegner’s more than 70 years of collaboration. The deep and complex colours inspired by the Danish artist Per Kirkeby, nod to the raw beauty of the Nordic landscape. Primo each month a new colour is launched until December 2022.
