Wegner is being celebrated with a special edition of the Wishbone Chair


To mark Hans J. Wegner’s 103 birthday Carl Hansen & Son for the first time presents the Wishbone Chair in the wood species elm.

Hans J. Wegner designed the legendary Wishbone Chair with the distinctive Wishbone shaped back in 1949, and the following year it was put into production.

Collectors and design enthusiasts now can acquire a unique version in oiled elm and seat in natural wicker.

The chair is available only on 27 April and comes with the designer’s engraved signature and a certificate of authenticity.

It is the first time the Wishbone Chair is being made in this strong and beautiful material.
