CH24 Wishbone chair in colour

By Carl Hansen


  • Description

    Designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1949 as one of the first models created especially for Carl Hansen & Son, and produced since 1950. The last of a series of chairs Wegner designed based on inspiration from antique Chinese armchairs.

    The gently rounded top together with the back and seat offers a variety of comfortable seating positions, ideal for both long visits to the dining table and relaxed lounging. A light chair, easy to move around the dining table and about the room.

    The characteristic "Y" provides comfortable back support and stability to the steam-bent top, also inspiring the chair's names; "The Wishbone Chair" or "The Y-Chair".
    An excellent example of Wegner's constant striving towards organic simplicity to create sculptural beauty, comfort and outstanding stability.
