STYLE, SOPHISTICATION AND DURABILITY
The CH24 Wishbone Chair from Carl Hansen’s Hans J Wegner is an iconic part of Scandinavian design history. This timeless piece has been in continuous production since its inception in 1950, and its sleek design still proves as popular as ever.
The elegant form has an arched back that provides effortless comfort alongside a stylish aesthetic. The manufacturing process consists of over 100 steps, demonstrating the amount of care taken to craft each chair. With a handwoven papercord seat, the CH24 is about style, sophistication, and durability – three staple characteristics of Scandinavian design. Its instantly recognisable silhouette is sure to become the talking point of any dining or living space.
HANS J. WEGNER
Among Danish furniture designers, Hans J. Wegner (1914-2007) is considered one of the most creative, innovative and prolific. Often referred to as the master of the chair, Wegner created almost 500 in his lifetime – many of them considered masterpieces. His iconic Wishbone Chair is probably the most well-known and has been in continuous production since 1950.
Wegner was part of the spectacular generation that created what is today referred to as ‘the Golden Age’ of modern Danish design. “Many foreigners have asked me how we created the Danish style,” Wegner once said. “And I’ve answered that it was a continuous process of purification and of simplification – to cut down to the simplest possible design of four legs, a seat, and a combined back- and armrest.”
