Available in 5 classic colours in an alluring matte finish, this Special Edition CH24 Wishbone Chair by Hans J Wegner for Carl Hansen & Son is available from Cult until December 2020, and has an equally alluring, contract friendly price.

Just like the original, this special edition is timelessly elegant with a clean and characteristic expression, available in a soft matte black, grey, white, green or red.

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.

When designing the CH24, Wegner chose to combine the back- and armrest into a single piece. To give stability to the steam-bent top and ensure comfortable support, Wegner developed the characteristic Y-shaped back that the Wishbone Chair is named after.

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 Wishbone Chair offers comfort and stability as well as satisfying aesthetic desires for distinctive, elegant form.

The new finish has an inviting quality that tempts the gaze to follow along the backrest, enticing the hand to do the same. Furthermore, the coating makes it easy to maintain the chair, keeping the design looking immaculate over time.

Over time, the Wishbone Chair has gained recognition as the ideal chair, capturing the essence of modern Danish design. The CH24 Soft is a gentle counterpart to a Wishbone Chair, with a brighter finish.
