The CH24 Wishbone Chair in 9 new soft colors

Hans J. Wegner x Ilse Crawford


To celebrate Hans J. Wegner’s more than 70 years of collaboration with Carl Hansen & Søn, the company is now expanding its collaboration with London-based designer Ilse Crawford to include the Wishbone Chair in nine new colors.

Hans J. Wegner designed the world-renowned Wishbone Chair (CH24) in 1949 at Carl Hansen & Søn, which has produced the chair continuously for more than 70 years. To celebrate this milestone, Ilse Crawford has selected nine matte colors that give the chair a new perspective. All colors are eco-friendly, water-based and resilient, so they are perfect for both private and public use.

“We wanted to develop a range of colors that reflect the times we live in, and we believe these subdued tones will resonate with a contemporary audience,” says Ilse Crawford.

These are not standard colors governed by the trends of the time, but colors that add depth and complexity to any interior.”  The picturesque colors celebrate plants, minerals and the soil that make up the raw beauty of the Nordic landscape, and they work both individually and in interaction with each other. “Colors are so closely related to our emotions and our mood,” Crawford says, “and we believe that these subdued tones will help create a warm, relaxed and natural environment.”

The new color palette by Ilse Crawford is available throughout 2022 and celebrates Carl Hansen & Søn and Hans J. Wegner’s more than 70 years of collaboration.
