Limited Edition & Signed Elm Wishbone Chair by Carl Hansen
To honour Hans J. Wegner’s birthday, Carl Hansen & Søn is presenting the first-ever elm version of his Wishbone Chair, available in a limited, signed edition only available to order until April 27, 2017.
Collectors and design connoisseurs will have the opportunity to acquire a unique edition of Hans J. Wegner’s elegant Wishbone Chair when Carl Hansen & Søn offers the coveted design in oil-treated elm and natural paper cord. This is the first time the Wishbone Chair has been crafted using this strong, beautiful wood type. The special birthday elm edition is sourced from North American forests characterized by a very distinctive structure with visible grain and vivid color interplay.
Hans J. Wegner’s legendary Wishbone Chair represented a design breakthrough when it was unveiled in 1950. With its graphic, expressive design, the Wishbone Chair – perhaps more than any other – demonstrates Wegner’s innovative prowess and unique understanding of wood’s potential. Almost 70 years after the Wishbone Chair came into existence, it still imposes high expectations on Carl Hansen & Søn’s skilled craftsmen, who must handle and assemble the chair’s 14 parts and hand-weave a seat made from 120 meters of paper cord before the finished chair can leave the factory.
The limited edition Wishbone Chair celebrating Hans J. Wegner’s birthday – he would have turned 103 this April – will be available only until Thursday, April 27. The chair will come engraved with the designer’s signature and with a certificate of authenticity.
Available to order until April 27th, 2017 – £595.00
