CH24 Wishbone Chair - CHS Color

Hans J. Wegner, 1950


The Wishbone Chair is perhaps Wegner's most celebrated work. A light, attractive and comfortable dining chair with the characteristic Y-shaped back. The chair is a triumph of craftsmanship with a simple design and clean lines. Despite the chair's straightforward appearance it takes more than 100 steps to make one. The hand-woven seat consists of more than 120 meters of paper cord. Hans J. Wegner designed the Wishbone Chair for Carl Hansen & Søn in 1949 and it has been in continuous production since 1950.  In full CHS Color lacquer, the Wishbone Chair is available in 25 unique colors.
