  • Description

    In honor of Hans J. Wegner's 105th birthday on 2 April 2019, Carl Hansen & Søn is presenting a previously unseen variant of the master of chairs' legendary Wishbone Chair. The unique special edition has a walnut frame with an oiled finish and, exceptionally, an exclusive goat leather seat. This version of the Wishbone Chair has never been manufactured before.

    Carl Hansen & Søn has chosen the combination of walnut and goat leather to achieve a highly exclusive expression, as an extraordinary tribute to Hans J. Wegner on the occasion of the anniversary of his birth.

    This chair was only available to buy 2nd of April 2019. However we still have some limited stock available.

  • Technical Info

    W:55 x D:51 x H:76cm (Seat height: 45cm)

    Material: walnut

    Seat: red goat leather seat

    The goat leather used for the CH24P Limited Edition is made of raw hides of the highest quality. The leather is vegetable-produced aniline leather and has a completely natural bare surface. This means that all natural marks such as fat strips, insect bites etc. are visible and contribute to the exclusive and unique look. The leather's natural grain structure is preserved, which means that it 'breathes' and therefore provides optimum sitting comfort. Over time, daylight and usage gives the leather its own unique character and a beautiful patina.
    For everyday care and cleaning, we recommend using a clean soft cloth wrung out with lukewarm water.
