Product description

With a design that is uniquely its own, the Wishbone Chair holds a special position in the world of modern design. This iconic design was the last part of a Wegner series inspired by portraits of Danish merchants sitting in Chinese Ming Dynasty chairs. Wegner took a giant leap in furniture design with the series, combining the top rails and arms into a single piece. The characteristic Y-shaped back provides comfortable support while giving stability to the steam-bent top.

Dimensions: H75 x B55 cm.
Designed by: Hans J. Wegner.

History
This iconic design was the last part of a Wegner series inspired by portraits of Danish merchants sitting in Chinese Ming Dynasty chairs. Wegner took a giant leap in furniture design with the series, combining the top rails and arms into a single piece. The characteristic Y-shaped back provides comfortable support while giving stability to the steam-bent top.

Many view the CH24 as an ideal chair as it fulfills the functional demands for comfort and stability while having a distinct look. In other words: it captures the essence of modern Danish design.
