The story behind this product
Hans J. Wegner designed the very first model of the Wishbone Chair exclusively for Carl Hansen & Søn in 1949, since then this iconic chair has been in continuous production since its introduction in 1950.
Suitable for dining and relaxed seating, the Wishbone's frame is steam-bent with gently rounded top-pieces that provide freedom of movement and generous comfort, making it an excellent piece for both work and relaxation spaces.
More than 100 steps are required to manufacture each Wishbone Chair, most of which are carried out by hand. The hand-woven seat alone takes a skilled craftsman about an hour to create, using approximately 120 meters of paper cord, the impressive durability and stability of which makes the chair both strong and long-lasting.
The characteristic 'Y' provides comfortable back support and stability, also inspiring the chair's names; 'The Wishbone Chair' or 'The Y-Chair'.
