CH24 Birthday Edition 2020

For 2020, the Wishbone Chair takes a darker turn, as its elegant frame is reimagined in a glossy navy blue finish.

The CH24’s striking new color was carefully selected in close collaboration with the London-based designer and creative director, Ilse Crawford, and her multidisciplinary practice, Studioilse. The deep, moody shade of navy and the high-gloss finish were both inspired by Wegner’s long-standing fascination with Asian design history and craft.

“The blue refers to the color, which has been so much a part of Chinese culture: from the blue and white china that obsessed the world for so many centuries, to the dark blue of indigo textiles,” says Crawford, “While the high gloss finish references the traditional Chinese lacquer finish.”  Ilse Carwford

Though the color aims to capture some of Wegner’s historical interests, when paired with the Wishbone Chair’s natural woven paper cord seat, the dynamic contrast in texture and tone creates a distinctly contemporary statement.
