Famous design icons are a stamp of quality
HANS J. WEGNER
HANDMADE TO EXCELLENCE
Carl Hansen & Søn’s evolution has been deeply influenced by their long-term relationship with one of the greatest designers of all time: Hans J. Wegner.
The creative partnership began in 1949, when Carl Hansen’s son Holger Hansen took a chance on the then-unknown designer, and Wegner developed a successful furniture series that included the now-iconic Wishbone Chair.
This collaboration and the many that followed demonstrated what can be achieved when unprecedented design and uncompromising production come together.
SUSTAINABILITY THROUGH ENDURANCE
LONG LIFFE SPAN BENEFITS EVERYBODY
At Carl Hansen & Søn, they believe that one of the best strategies for sustainable living is to make and buy things that last, which is why they use the best materials and craftsmanship in everything they produce. Their products are crafted to last a lifetime and their products will be passed down and enjoyed for generations. To encourage this, they provide highly-skilled, in-house repair and refurbishment services. This way, after decades of daily use, even the most well-worn, well-loved piece of furniture can be restored and made ready for many more years of practical enjoyment.
The CH24 Wishbone Chair
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.
