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.

Hans Wegner

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 Furniture, Denmark
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.

This is an iconic, classic Hans Wegener piece. It doesn't need a review; for me it's perfect. I am writing this only because of the great job HIVE did with regard to the purchase and shipping.

No other dining chair has such a complex form, yet seemingly simple presence.

The only area of consideration for use is the relatively high arching armrests. The simple, and deep, barrel form may make it impossible to push in the chair fully, so adequate space around your table is a must if clearance under the table is not sufficient.

Wishbone Chair

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.
