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 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".
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 Seat
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 natural and black. The natural color is made from pure, unbleached paper from Swedish forests, and the black is dyed prior to weaving.
