CH24 Teak from Carl Hansen
Among Danish furniture designers, Hans J. Wegner is considered one of the most creative, innovative, and prolific. Often referred to as the master of the chair, he designed more than 500 – many of them considered masterpieces. The CH24 Wishbone Chair has been in continuous production since 1950.
With a form that is uniquely its own, the iconic CH24 Wishbone Chair by Hans J. Wegner holds a special place in the world of modern design. When designing the CH24, Wegner chose to combine the back- and armrest into a single piece. To give stability to the steam-bent top and ensure comfortable support, Wegner developed the characteristic Y-shaped back that the Wishbone Chair is named after.
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 make the chair both strong and long-lasting.
The Wishbone Chair offers comfort and stability as well as satisfying aesthetic desires for a distinctive, elegant form. Over time, the Wishbone Chair has gained recognition as the ideal chair, capturing the essence of modern Danish design.
Carl Hansen & Son now introduces the dining set CH24 and CH327 in teak with oak details.
Historically, teak was used to make some of the first Wegner chairs in the 1950s-1960s and was loved for its intense colour, but as demands grew higher, the use of the tropical teak stalled, and more Nordic wood types, like oak and beech, grew in popularity.
Teak forestry has changed dramatically in the past 70 years, and today, the sourced teak is FSC-certified (FSC C135991) and originates from responsibly managed forests. Teak is characterized by its high strength, stability, and vibrant colour which elegantly changes from orange to reddish-brown hues during its lifetime.
The black grain of the wood results in a dynamic expression that stays beautiful due to its natural content of oil.
Carl Hansen furniture is made from the best natural materials and stands for exceptional seating comfort. The chairs and tables are true masterpieces of design and craftsmanship. The chair models in particular have become almost all classics or sought-after collector's items. For example the well-known "Wishbone-Chair" CH24 or the relax chair CH07. Carl Hansen design furniture - modern furniture from Denmark.
