CH24 | Wishbone Chair | Oak| Black | Carl Hansen | SHOWMODEL

The natural papercord is made from pure, unbleached paper from Swedish forests.
The paper cord is treated with a light wax coating prior to weaving in order to make it more resistant to discoloration and grease.

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 oak trees CH uses are somewhere between 150-250 years old. Oak has shorter fibers than ash but is also a very strong wood type. Oak is however easier to work with than ash. It has an open surface and the fibers are visible and touchable even when painted. 

Paper cord
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 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".
