WEGNER Danish Wood Furniture Design ORIGINAL Model CH-24 Modern aka "WISHBONE" Chair







The original Wishbone CH-24 Hans Wegner design Arm Chair is regarded by many Modern Architects & Interior Designers as the most beautiful modern chair in the world. This stylish Danish design chair can be used either as a side chair in a lounge or around the dining room table. Hans J. Wegner was one of the most influential figures in the development of Danish design during the 1940s and 1950s. Along with his experimental approach to wood and form, he was captivated by the potential of Scandinavian wood crafting in natural color tones, an honest and novel material at the time. His aim was to create a comfortable chair made from wood and woven strands that could be used anywhere. After searching for a manufacturer for several years, Wegner came into contact with Carl Hansen in the 1950s. Together they developed the Wishbone Chair, which was first presented in 1949.
