Wishbone Dining Chair

A Symphony in Scandinavian Design

A timeless icon of modern Danish design; Offers comfort and stability; Unique form


The Wishbone Chair is the very first model Hans J. Wegner designed exclusively for Carl Hansen & Søn’s in 1949.


To give stability to the steam-bent top and ensure comfortable support, Wegner developed the characteristic Y-shaped back that the Wishbone Chair is named after. The hand-woven seat from paper cord has impressive durability and stability of which makes the chair both strong and long-lasting. The lightness and sculptural shape of the Wishbone Chair adds style and functionality to any space.


With its light weight and compact sculptural shape, the Wishbone Chair is ideal for conversations around the dining table. Check out our Dining Table range to pair these elegant chairs with! Or peruse our Dining Furniture collection for more designs as well!
