CH24 Wishbone Chair Black Beech & Black Paper Cord Seat



Expertly updated and re-released by Carl Hansen & Søn, this all-black edition of the iconic Wishbone CH24 Chair makes up part of the ‘Black Editions’ collection of Hans J. Wegner furniture.

Originally designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1949, the all-black edition of the iconic Wishbone Chair follows original plans by Hans J. Wegner with stylish updates for the contemporary interior.

Crafted with a gently rounded black-stained beech wood top rail and wonderfully sculptural shape, the lightweight Wishbone Chair allows for freedom of movement and superior comfort, making it an ideal design for both work and relaxation spaces.

Inspired by a portrait of Danish merchants sitting in traditional Ming chairs, this intricate design showcases the ergonomic sensibility that defines the antique Chinese chair. Characterised by the distinctive ‘Y’ detail, the eponymous ‘wishbone’ design offers back support, stability and a unique design.

More than 100 production steps are carried out by hand to create this masterpiece and the seat is expertly hand-woven from 120 metres of black paper cord, awarding the chair impeccable longevity.

The Wishbone Chair is an excellent example of iconic Danish designer Hans J. Wegner’s constant striving towards organic simplicity in his work, and his desire to create sculptural beauty, comfort and outstanding stability.
