ch24 wishbone chair - wood

Design Hans Wegner, 1949
Hardwood, natural cord caning
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son

The CH24 chair or "Wishbone Chair" as it is often called due to the shape of the back, is a light chair and even being an armchair, a relatively small piece of furniture. The curved hind legs and the semicircular top rail together with the elegant Y-back endows the chair with a gracious and welcoming air.

The CH24 sits well, is spacious and allows its user to change position. The back offers good support and most people feel comfortable in it for a longer period of time. The curved top rail makes it easy to move around and though the arm rests are long enough to give adequate support to your forearms, the chair can still be pushed in close to a table. Today the Y-chair has developed into Wegner's and Carl Hansen's most popular chair by far. CH24 is available in a variety of wood and finish options and also offered with an optional leather seat cushion in your choice of seven colors.

For a limited time, Carl Hansen & Son brings you the essence of Tobacco in a limited edition finish for Hans J. Wegner's CH24 Wishbone Chair. The Tobacco finish is available for this summer only. The Tobacco stain coats the solid oak and gives Wegner's design a rich organic expression.

Hans Wegner

Hans Jørgensen Wegner’s (1914 - 2007) high-quality and thoughtful work contributed to the international popularity of mid-century Danish design. His style is often described as Organic Functionality, a modernist school with emphasis on functionality, arising primarily in Scandinavian countries. In his lifetime, he designed over 500 different chairs, over 100 of which were put into mass production, with many recognizable icons among them. Born to cobbler Peter M. Wegner, he worked as a child apprentice to Master cabinetmaker H. F. Stahlberg. With an affinity for wood, he attended the Danish School of Arts and Crafts and the Architectural Academy in Copenhagen. In 1936, he began studies at what is now The Danish Design School, with O. Mølgaard Nielsen as teacher.

Carl Hansen & Son

A workshop in Odense, Denmark in 1908, was the birthplace of the Carl Hansen company. With a fast reputation for quality work, Carl Hansen confidently took on large projects like dining room sets and bedroom suites. However, Hansen eventually learned to capitalize on scaled-back versions of his popular sellers, realizing that their strongest asset was its hand craftsmanship and rationality. Carl Hansen invited Hans Wegner to create designs in 1949, launching a mutually beneficial relationship bringing success to the company and exposure to the young Wegner. Wegner was still relatively unknown, but soon gained wide acclaim that continues to today.

Wishbone Chair
, less than two months ago.
Very good quality, however a joint became loose in one of the two chairs in my original order, over a year ago. I reinforced it myself with a wood glue.

timeless & handcrafted in denmark
, more than a month ago.
the ch24 wishbone chair chair is still hand made in denmark just as it always has been. it is uncanny that if you take a recent production and a vintage example from 50 years ago and put them side by side, the fit and finish and everything about it is pretty much exactly the same.... thats a very good thing. in terms of quality, craftmanship and heritage, the ch24 is as good as it gets.
