The Wishbone Chair – famous for its distinctive wishbone-shaped back – was designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1950 and has remained in continuous production at Carl Hansen & Son ever since. Join us for a behind-the-scenes look at the Wishbone Chair to gain insight into the creation of this world-famous design icon.
Hans J. Wegner left nothing to chance when his Wishbone Chair was to enter production. On account of the intense working relationship between the designer and the joiners, Wegner decided to move in with Holger Hansen's family on the Danish island of Funen so that he could monitor every single process at the factory first-hand during the final, critical weeks. He was adamant that the final result should not be compromised, and made a point of personally supervising all phases of the production process up until the launch in 1950.
