Limited Edition CH24 Wishbone chair by Hans J. Wegner for Carl Hansen & Son.

To celebrate their 110th anniversary, Carl Hansen & Son have released two new limited edition colour series of the Wishbone chair, available until 31st December 2018

The Russet Hues series features warm, earthy tones. Rosy Blush, Russet Red and Deep Burgundy are rooted in nature and offer an inviting ambience. 

The Harmony series takes its colour palette from the countryside. Oyster Grey, Forest Green and Deep Olive bring the outdoors in, the calming landscape-shades working in balanced harmony.

All six chairs feature a natural paper cord seat. 

The CH24 chair was designed in 1949 and has been in continuous production since 1950, making it one of the most immediately recognisable and widely loved designs of the twentieth century.

The CH24 was the first chair Wegner designed for Carl Hansen & Son. Popularly known as the 'wishbone chair' or 'Y' chair because of the signature steam-moulded Y-shaped back which provides support and stability, the CH24 is constructed using more than 100 separate production stages. The chair seat is handwoven using 120 metres of paper-cord, durable enough to last up to 50 years.

The Wishbone chair is an excellent example of Wegner’s constant striving towards organic simplicity to create sculptural beauty, comfort and outstanding stability.
