An Interior Landmark: The Wishbone Chair by Hans J. Wegner

Few would argue with its success, fewer still would claim it undeserved. Designed in 1949 by Hans J. Wegner as part of the early collection for Carl Hansen & Son, the Wishbone chair is still made in three weeks with 14 parts and 100 separate processes. Shaped and assembled predominantly by hand, the design is a testimony to the elegance found in simplicity. A high degree of craftsmanship paired with the versatility of the chair’s silhouette have granted it a rarely achieved stylistic endurance. To read more about the history and significance of the Wishbone, look no further than Design Milk.
