Icon: CH24 Wishbone Chair by Carl Hansen
The CH24 Wishbone Chair by Carl Hansen, also known as the Y-Chair, is an icon among chairs.
Designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1950, the noble wooden chair is still extremely popular today.
Two points make the Wishbone Chair so unmistakable: on the one hand, its strong character design with the very personal mark in the form of the Ypsilon on the backrest and, on the other hand, the quality guaranteed by the highest standards of craftsmanship.
Carl Hansen & Søn - Danish design since 1908
What began in 1908 as a small furniture workshop on the Danish island of Funen has developed into a successful and globally renowned design company. Since the carpenter Carl Hansen founded the company, two aspects have been in the foreground: the uncompromising commitment to the finest craftsmanship and the collaboration with exceptional designers.
Thus, the development of Carl Hansen & Søn was significantly influenced by the well-known Danish designer Hans J. Wegner. The creative connection with him began in 1949 when Carl Hansen's son met Wegner and enabled the then unknown designer to create an extensive furniture series. One part of the collection conceived at that time is the today absolutely well-known and popular Wishbone Chair, also called CH24.
Material and format
The seat is made of 120 metres of hard-wearing paper yarn, which is woven into the frame by hand. A total of one hundred manual steps are necessary before the Y-Chair leaves the Carl Hansen & Søn factory. Maximum seating comfort and the essence of modern Danish design - that is what distinguishes the Wishbone Chair.

- NOTE: Due to the high quality, handmade wickerwork, it may happen that one of the chair legs appears shorter, as the wickerwork is very strongly bound. This will self-adjust after about a month of normal sitting as the weave loosens. -
