The Wishbone Chair – Wegners Most Famous Work
The designer Hans J. Wegner created his most famous chair in 1949: the CH24. Characterised by timeless elegance, the chair is particularly well-suited for the dining table and the living room.
The surprisingly comfortable design classic from Carl Hansen still has a light and attractive aura. The Wishbone Chair is an outstanding example of Hans J. Wegner's ongoing quest for organic simplicity, comfort and stability in the products he designs.
Shortly after it was presented for the first time, the Wishbone chair became Wegner's bestselling design thanks to its iconic appearance. To this day, the CH24 is simply referred to as "The Chair" among design connoisseurs in Denmark - no other quality could better describe the status of the classic by Hans J. Wegner.
Design Classic for Different Purposes
The characteristic "Y" in the backrest of the CH24 ensures comfort when sitting while also serving to stabilise the steam-bent backrest. The slightly curved backrest, the special brace and the hand-woven seat make it possible to adopt various seating positions suitable for different purposes.
Craftsmanship at the Highest Level
With its straightforward design and clean lines, the CH24 Wishbone Chair is a prime example of the highest level of craftsmanship. The simple appearance makes it hard to guess that 100 individual steps are needed to make the chair. The hand-woven seat alone consists of a 120 m paper cord, which is processed by Carl Hansen & Søn with an uncompromising commitment to quality.
The CH24 Wishbone Chair by Carl Hansen is available in different versions.
