CH24 Wishbone Chair-Classic

The very first model Hans Wegner designed in 1949, the CH24 or Wishbone Chair, has been in continuous production since its introduction in 1950. With a form that is uniquely its own, the iconic chair holds a special place in the world of modern design.

When designing the CH24, Wegner chose to combine the back- and armrest into a single piece. To give stability to the steam-bent top and ensure comfortable support, Wegner developed the characteristic Y-shaped back that the Wishbone Chair is named after. More than 100 steps are required to manufacture each Wishbone Chair, most of which are carried out by hand. The hand-woven seat alone takes a skilled craftsman about an hour to create, using approximately 120 meters of paper cord, the impressive durability, and stability of which make the chair both strong and long-lasting. Over time, the Wishbone Chair has gained recognition as the ideal chair, capturing the essence of modern Danish design.
