CH24 Wishbone chair in colour - Quickship

By Carl Hansen


  • Description

    With a unique form of its own, the iconic CH24 Wishbone Designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1949 holds a special place in the world of modern design. It is one of the first models created especially for Carl Hansen & Son, and has been in production since 1950. The last of a series of chairs Wegner designed based on inspiration from antique Chinese armchairs.

    With its rounded top rail and wonderfully sculptural shape, the lightweight Wishbone chair allows for freedom of movement and outstanding comfort, making it an excellent piece for both work and relaxation spaces. The characteristic "Y" provides comfortable back support and stability, 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 exceptional stability. A light chair, easy to move around the dining table and about the room.
