CH24 | Wishbone Chair

With a unique shape, the legendary CH24 Wishbone Chair by Hans J. Wegner occupies a special place in the world of modern design.

In developing the CH24, Wegner chose to combine the back and armrest in one piece. To give the steam-bent top stability and provide comfortable support, Wegner developed the signature Y-shaped backrest for which the Wishbone Chair is named.

More than 100 steps are required to create each Wishbone chair, most of which are done by hand. The Wishbone Chair offers comfort and stability as well as satisfying aesthetic desires for a distinctive, elegant form.


CH25 | Lounge Chair

The CH25 is one of the first four chairs that Hans J. Wegner designed exclusively for Carl Hansen & Søn at the beginning of the collaboration that began in 1949. Considered revolutionary at the time, the chair went into production in 1950.

Like many other iconic designs by Hans J. Wegner, the CH25 lounge chair is clear and simple in its unmistakable form. However, its introduction caused a stir due to Wegner's choice of materials for the backrest and seat. The woven paper cord had not been used in furniture before. Wegner, however, was delighted with the look of the material and its stretchability and optimum durability, as were generations after him.

The production of the CH25 has remained the same since the 1950s. It takes an experienced craftsman 10 hours and about 400 meters of paper cord to finish a seat and backrest by hand.


MG501 | Cuba Chair

The MG501 Cuba Chair by Morten Gøttler takes extra seating to a new level. It features a solid oak frame, with the cotton girths around the frame forming a comfortable seat and back and providing excellent support as they gently follow the body’s contours. This folding lounge chair is ideal as an extra or permanent fixture. Its light and foldable frame can easily be hung on a wall or placed on a floor stand for convenient storage. Meanwhile, the chair has all the elegance of a sculpture with its natural materials, clean cotton webbing and evident craftsmanship. In short, it beautifully embodies the concept of complex simplicity. The MG501 Cuba Chair paper cord thus captures all Gøttler is known for – his clean, easy aesthetic and well-thought-out form, as well as his designs offering exquisite comfort, and close attention to detail – all created using high-quality materials.
