The Wishbone Chair - Wegner's most famous work
With the CH24 Wishbone Chair, designer Hans J. Wegner created what is probably his most famous piece in 1949. The chair is particularly suitable for the dining table and the living area, where it convinces with its timeless elegance.
Even today, the surprisingly comfortable design classic by Carl Hansen & Søn has a light and attractive appearance. The Wishbone Chair is an outstanding example of Hans J. Wegner's continuous quest for organic simplicity, comfort and stability in the products he designs.
The iconic appearance of the Wishbone ("sternum") Chair made it a bestseller among Wegner's designs shortly after its introduction. To this day, the CH24 is known in Denmark among design connoisseurs simply as "The Chair" - hardly any other characteristic could better describe the status of Hans J. Wegner's classic.
The characteristic "Y" in the backrest of the CH24 ensures comfortable sitting, simultaneously stabilises the steam-curved backrest and, of course, is responsible for the name of the chair. The Wishbone Chair is also known as the Y Chair . The gently curved backrest, the special bracing and the hand-woven seat surface allow a wide range of seating positions, making the CH24 suitable for a variety of applications.
With its simple design and clear lines, the CH24 Wishbone Chair is a prime example of the highest craftsmanship. The simple impression hardly gives any idea that 100 individual steps are required to manufacture the chair. The hand-woven seat alone consists of 120 m of paper cord, which is processed by Carl Hansen & Søn in uncompromising quality.
The CH24 Wishbone Chair from Carl Hansen is available in different versions.
