The well-known CH24 Wishbone chair by Carl Hansen and Son was designed by Hans Wegner as early as 1949 and
has been in continuous production since 1950.
Carl Hansen en Son produces this dining room chair in beech with a modern matte finish and is available in
‘Black’, ’Silver Gray’, 'Anthracite Gray’ 'Natural White’, ‘Green’, 'Olive Green', 'Blue', ‘Orange Red’ and 'Red brown'.
Due to comfort in combination with beautiful design, the Wishbone Chair, now a design classic, is still very popular.
The precisely thought-out shape of the backrest and the papercord seat, which springs comfortably and ventilates,
make the CH24 a dining room chair that you can sit on at dinner for a long time.
And, the Wishbone Chair is also ideal at the reading table or as a small relaxing armchair.
The softly rounded backrest, the light Y-construction and the hand-woven paper cord offer the chair a variety of comfortable sitting positions.
The very stable and also very light construction of the chair makes it easy to move.
Combine the CH24 Wishbone Chairs with the dining tables by Carl Hansen & Son, the tables by Hans J. Wegner CH327, CH337, CH338, CH339 and CH388 are very suitable.
The Getama dining table GE526 designed by Hans Wegner also matches perfectly.
Here you will find a leather cushion specially designed for the CH24 in several colours.
The papercord seat of the CH24 |
The CH24 Soft Edition comes with a seat in natural papercord.
Papercord is made from pure, unbleached paper.
Hans Wegner chose papercord for comfort and because it is very durable and just as natural as wood.
The "paper twine" is treated with a light wax coating prior to braiding for protection from discoloration and grease.
The CH24 in beech |
The beeches used by Carl Hansen are about 150 years old. Beech is lighter than oak, but heavier than ash.
It has a very smooth texture and if varnished or painted, as with this Soft Colors of the CH24, the fibers will not be visible.
The CH24 is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship with a simple design and clean lines. Despite the uncomplicated look of the chair,
more than 100 steps are needed to produce one chair.
