CH24 Wishbone Chair Soaped Beech & Natural Paper Cord Seat



Designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1949 and crafted by Carl Hansen & Søn, the soaped beech and natural paper cord Wishbone Chair is a classic design that is sure to make a unique addition to any space.

Expertly created using a combination of modern treatments and natural dying techniques that take several weeks to complete, the prestigious Danish manufacturer Carl Hansen & Søn has mastered the art of making a Wishbone.

Characterised by its distinctive Y detail, the Wishbone Chair was inspired by a portrait of Danish merchants sitting in traditional Ming chairs. Offering back support, stability and a unique aesthetic, the CH24 Chair boasts a gently rounded top rail and wonderfully sculptural shape to allow for freedom of movement and superior comfort.

Beautifully crafted from soaped beech that reveals the unique grain of the wood, the frame is finished with a beautifully hand-woven seat. Expertly crafted from 120 metres of paper cord, more than 100 production steps are taken to craft this exquisite chair.

The driving force behind ‘Danish Modern’, Hans J. Wegner’s innovative designs altered the public’s view of furniture throughout the 1950s and 60s. Known as the ‘Master of the Chair’, his partnership with Carl Hansen & Søn began in 1949 and continues to this day, revitalised with partnerships with brands such as Hiut Denim Co.
