Wegner took a giant leap in furniture design with the CH24, combining the top rails and arms into a single piece. To give stability to the steam-bent top and ensure comfortable support, Wegner developed the characteristic Y-shaped back that earned the CH24 chair its famous nickname: Wishbone. Inspired by portraits of Danish merchants sitting in Chinese Ming Dynasty chairs, the CH24 offers comfort and stability as well as aesthetic desires for distinctive, beautiful form. Many view the CH24 as the ideal chair, capturing the essence of modern Danish design.
Among Danish furniture designers, Hans J. Wegner (1914-2007) is considered one of the most creative, innovative and prolific. Often referred to as the master of the chair, Wegner designed more than 500 chairs in his lifetime – many of them considered masterpieces.
