CH24 Birthday Edition 2018

The ever-current Hans J. Wegner would have turned 104 on April 2, 2018. As a tribute to the great master of chair design, Carl Hansen & Søn is presenting his coveted Wishbone Chair in a unique edition: Ancient Oak, which is oak that has been specially treated to recreate the strength, warmth, and dark-brown color of its thousand-year-old bog oak counterpart. The chair, which features a natural woven paper cord seat, will only be available April 2-3, 2018, with a brass plate engraved with Wegner’s signature and a certificate of authenticity.

In celebration of Hans J. Wegner’s birthday, Carl Hansen & Søn is crafting his iconic Wishbone Chair in a new edition that, with its intense, warm glow, naturally joins the Nordic design universe. This special edition has been named Ancient Oak in reference to the exceptionally well-preserved, thousand-year-old pieces of oak occasionally found in peat bogs. Such oak acquires distinctive characteristics through its contact with the iron salts in the bog – and is quite rare. Employing modern processing and dyeing techniques, Carl Hansen & Son has recreated the characteristic look and qualities of bog oak with the Ancient Oak variant.
