15% Off - Limited Edition CH24 Wishbone Chair - Elm.
Only 1 available.
To commemorate Hans J. Wegner’s birthday in April, Carl Hansen & Son is producing a signed Limited Edition CH24 Wishbone Chair in Elm. The Wishbone has been manufactured in various wood types over the years but this will be the first time the chair has been made using this strong, beautiful wood. The elm is treated with a clear oil finish which highlights the natural grain and is paired with a natural paper cord seat.
All chairs will come engraved with Hans J. Wegner’s signature and birth date (please see images), as well as with a certificate of authenticity.
The CH24 Wishbone chair is a light, attractive and comfortable dining chair with it's iconic Y-shaped back. The Wishbone Chair is perhaps Wegner's most celebrated work.
A triumph of craftsmanship with a simple design and clean lines. Despite the chair's straightforward appearance it takes more than 100 steps to make one. Amongst other things, the hand-woven seat consists of more than 120 meters of paper cord. The design was actually the last part of a series inspired by portraits of Danish merchants sitting in Chinese Ming Dynasty chairs.
