The timeless essence of modern Danish design

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. Wegner took a giant leap in furniture design with the CH24, combining the top rails and arms into a single piece. To give stability to the steam-bent top and ensure comfortable support, Wegner developed the characteristic Y-shaped back that earned the CH24 chair its famous nickname: Wishbone. 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. The envelope-woven seat alone takes a skilled craftsman about one hour to create using approximately 120 meters of paper cord, whose impressive durability makes the chair strong and long lasting.
