Wishbone Chair by Hans Wegner for Carl Hansen & Søn

Info

Denmark, 1960

Designed by Hans Wegner in 1949 and first produced by Carl Hansen & Søn the following year, this armchair, model CH24, also known as the Wishbone or Y Chair, has proved to be one of Wegner’s most enduring. With roots in traditional Chinese design, the lightweight oak frame has a Y-shaped back and semicircular top rail that provides a rest for the arms. Its compact size makes it perfect at a table.

A later-date dark brown leather cushion from Carl Hansen augments the handcrafted papercord seat of the vintage chair.

Three chairs are available.
