The Wishbone Chair was one of the very first models Hans J.
Wegner designed especially for Carl Hansen & Søn and has been
in continuous production since 1950.
Designed by Hans J. Wegner.
The Wishbone Chair is perhaps Wegner's most celebrated work.
A light, attractive and comfortable dining chair with the
characteristic Y-shaped back. 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. Hans J. Wegner designed the Wishbone chair
for Carl Hansen & Søn in 1949 and it has been in
continuous production since 1950.
