The Wishbone Chair – Wegners most famous work
The designer Hans J. Wegner created his most famous chair in 1949: the CH24. This chair is especially suitable for the dining table and for living rooms, where it convinces with its timeless elegance.
The surprisingly comfortable design classic from Carl Hansen still has a weightless and attractive appearance. The chair is an exceptional example for the continuous search for organic simplicity, comfort and stability in the design of Hans J. Wegner’s products.
The iconic appearance of the Wishbone Chair transformed it into a top seller among Wegner’s designs. The CH24 is also known as “The Chair” among design enthusiasts in Denmark – hardly another quality could describe the classic chair from Hans J. Wegner better.
Design classic for different purposes
The characteristic “Y” in the backrest of the CH24 ensures comfortable sitting, it stabilizes the steam bent backrest at the same time and it is also the reason for the chair, which is as well-known as “Y Chair”. The softly bent backrest and the hand-braided seat enable different sitting positions, which is the reason why the CH24 is suitable for different purposes.
Hans Wegner chair convinces by handicraft on the highest level
The CH24 Wishbone Chair is a good example for high handicraft art with the simple design and the clear outlines. The simple appeal won’t make us suspect that 100 single steps are necessary for the production of the chair. The hand-braided seat is made of 120 meters of paper cord, which is made of the uncompromising Carl Hansen quality.
The CH24 is also available with a white or a black braid as well as with frames made of other kinds of woods and painted in different colours.Also in our blog:
