Set of 8 Wishbone chairs by Hans J Wegner for Carl Hansen
The Wishbone Chair, Hans J. Wegner, 1950. Inspired by classical portraits of Danish merchants sitting in Ming chairs, Wegner created a series of chairs that helped establish Denmark as an international leader of modern design. The Wishbone Chair is considered to be his most successful design. Also known as the Y Chair, the Wishbone has been produced in large volumes for over fifty years by the original manufacturer, Carl Hansen & Son.
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.
