The chair is a triumph of craftsmanship with a simple design and clean lines.
Despite the chair's straightforward appearance it takes more than 100 steps to make one. Amongst other things, the hand-woven seat consists of more than 120 meters of paper cord. Hans J. Wegner designed the Wishbone chair for Carl Hansen & Søn in 1949 and it has been in continuous production since 1950.
The beech trees Carl Hansen uses are also around 150 years old. Beech is lighter than oak but heavier than ash. Beech has shorter fibers than oak and therefore easier to work with. It has a very smooth surface and if painted or lacquered, the fibers will not be visible.
Hans J. Wegner first used paper cord on his designs back in 1949. He chose this material because it is incredibly durable and also as natural as the wood it was to be weaved around.
The paper cord is treated with a light wax coating prior to weaving in order to make it more resistant to discoloration and grease.
You can choose from three different colors: natural, black and white. The natural color is made from pure, unbleached paper from Swedish forests, and the black is dyed prior to weaving. The white color is bleached natural paper cord.

The gently rounded top together with the back and seat offers a variety of comfortable seating positions, ideal for both long visits to the dining table and relaxed lounging. A light chair, easy to move around the dining table and about the room.
The characteristic "Y" provides comfortable back support and stability to the steam-bent top, also inspiring the chair's names; "The Wishbone Chair" or "The Y-Chair".
