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 ash trees Carl Hansen & Søn uses are approximately 150 years old. Ash has an open structure and beautiful long fibers. It is a very strong wood type which makes it very suitable for furniture production.
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 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".
