Ex-Display - Oak oiled finish with black papercord seat.
A light, attractive and comfortable dining chair with the characteristic Y-shaped back. The Wishbone Chair is perhaps Wegner's most celebrated work.
The chair is 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.
