product description

This special Birthday Edition of the CH24 Wishbone Chair has been created in honour of designer's Hans J.Wegner's 105th Birthday on 2nd April. This previously unseen, unmanufactured version has an oiled walnut frame and exclusive red goat leather seat. As a constant experimentalist Wegner worked with Carl Hansen in the 1990s to find an allernative with the classic papercord seat with saddle leather but nothing was realised at the time due to an imperfect fit of the material together.

In collaboration with Hans J. Wegner’s Design Studio Carl Hansen & Søn has now continued this experiment, with clear references to the original test chair. With modern production techniques, the original problems have now been addresses and this unique variant of the Wishbone Chair is now available to design enthusiasts and collectors around the world . Manufactured by Carl Hansen & Son in Denmark the Wishbone Chair is every inch the Danish design classic and the company's best ever selling design.

The seat of the special edition is upholstered with goat leather, which provides comfort and softness. The exclusive leather has a very dense structure, so that the seat retains its shape and is incredibly durable.

Aniline leather is used without any surface treatment. This is characterized by visible structure on the surface of the leather, making each piece of leather unique. The deep red goat leather is vegetable-tanned, which means that only eco-friendly plant-based tanning agents have been used. The exclusive goat leather has been given a warm dark red hue in a two-step dying process that results in a vibrant and natural appearance and a deeply saturated representation of color. The result is an expression that will elegantly patinate over time.

The special edition Wishbone Chair adds yet another chapter to the story of this iconic chair – which has been in continuous production at Carl Hansen & Søn since 1950 – and bears a brass plate engraved with Hans J. Wegner’s signature and date of birth and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

This limited edition is only being offered on Hans J. Wegner’s birthday on 2 April 2019, and will therefore be manufactured in very limited numbers. Orders yours today!

The Wishbone or Y Chair acquired its name due to the 'Y' shaped back and with its measured use of materials is a light, sculptural dining chair which offers good back support and a comfortable sitting position.
