CH24 Wishbone Chair
Object

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. Inspired by portraits of Danish merchants sitting in Chinese Ming Dynasty chairs, the CH24 offers comfort and stability as well as aesthetic desires for distinctive, beautiful form. Many view the CH24 as the ideal chair, capturing the essence of modern Danish design. More than 100 operations are required to manufacture each chair, with most carried out by hand.
One of the very first models Hans J. Wegner designed especially for Carl Hansen & Søn, the CH24, or Wishbone Chair, has been in continuous production since 1950
