Product description

The Wishbone Chair is perhaps Wegner's most celebrated work. A light, attractive and comfortable dining chair with the characteristic Y-­‐shaped back. 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. Available in Danish hardwoods (oak, beech, ash) as well North American hardwoods (walnut, cherry) in a variety of finishes (soap, oil, lacquer, paint, stain). A cushion can be added in the seat for extra comfort.

Hans J. Wegner designed the Wishbone chair for Carl Hansen & Søn in 1949 and it has been in continuous production since 1950.
