"With a form that is uniquely its own, the iconic CH24 Wishbone Chair by Hans J. Wegner holds a special place
in the world of modern design.
It was the very first chair designed by Wegner for Carl Hansen & Søn in 1950 and has been in continuous
production since its introduction in 1950.
To commend this valuable partnership and journey of extraordinary design, we offer selected oak variants
of the CH24 Wishbone Chair at a special price. The offer is valid until November 30th, 2023."
The well-known CH24 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 oiled or lacquered teak with a seat in natural or black papercord.
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 (available in teak), 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 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.
