Carl Hansen & Søn once again marks the birthday of Hans J. Wegner on April 2nd with a special edition of the
iconic CH24 Wishbone Chair. This year we present the birthday edition in a natural combination of
FSCTM-certified oak with double woven paper cord.
The inspiration for this special edition arises from ‘THE LAB’, the Danish-based apprentice workshop of
Carl Hansen & Søn, where 20 young aspiring cabinetmakers are trained and educated every year. The
apprentices were commissioned to come up with a design idea for a new seat for the CH24 Wishbone Chair.
The best proposal was tested, approved by Hans J. Wegners Tegnestue and further developed by skilled weave
masters at Carl Hansen & Søn.
Offered in oiled, FSC™-certified oak (FSC-C135991) and natural paper cord, this special edition features an exclusive double woven seat. The special weaving technique is developed by the skilled craftsmen at Carl Hansen & Søn and pays tribute to Wegner’s iconic chair, which has been in continuous production since 1950. The CH24 Birthday Edition 2023 is fitted with an engraved brass plate featuring Wegner’s signature and date of birth. The chair is available for purchase only on March 30th, 2023.
