The CH24 chair, also known as Wishbone, is a true Danish design classic. Designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1949, the Wishbone chair has been produced by Carl Hansen & Søn since 1950.
When designing the CH24 chair, Wegner wanted to combine the backrest and armrests into one single piece. To support the steam-bent top, he developed the classic Y-shaped back, which earned the chair the name Wishbone. The end result was an elegant and graceful chair with seating comfort in a class of its own.
The manufacturing process of the Wishbone chair involves more than 100 steps, most of which are still made by hand. The hand-woven seat alone takes a skilled craftsman about one hour and 120 meters of paper cord to make. The carefully finished Wishbone is a masterpiece of traditional craftsmanship and Danish design.
