CH24 BIRTHDAY EDITION 2023
Carl Hansen & Søn once again marks the birthday of Hans J. Wegner on April 2nd with a special edition of the
iconic CH24 Wishbone Chair. This year we present the birthday edition in a natural combination of
FSCTM-certified oak with double woven paper cord.
The inspiration for this special edition arises from ‘THE LAB’, the Danish-based apprentice workshop of
Carl Hansen & Søn, where 20 young aspiring cabinetmakers are trained and educated every year. The
apprentices were commissioned to come up with a design idea for a new seat for the CH24 Wishbone Chair.
The best proposal was tested, approved by Hans J. Wegners Tegnestue and further developed by skilled weave
masters at Carl Hansen & Søn.
The CH24 Birthday Edition 2023 features an exclusive small brass plate engraved with Hans J. Wegner’s
signature and date of birth discreetly placed on the inside of the frame. It also comes with a certificate of
authenticity. The chair is only for sale on March 30th, 2023.
The CH24 chair, also known as Wishbone, is a true Danish design classic. Designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1949, the Wishbone chair has been produced by Carl Hansen & Søn since 1950.
When designing the CH24 chair, Wegner wanted to combine the backrest and armrests into one single piece. To support the steam-bent top, he developed the classic Y-shaped back, which earned the chair the name Wishbone. The end result was an elegant and graceful chair with seating comfort in a class of its own.
The CH24 Birthday Chair 2023 is made from oiled, FSCTM-certified oak and natural paper cord. Paper cord is a
material which Carl Hansen & Søn has great experience with, as it has been an important part of the company’s
DNA since Wegner made the first sketches for the Wishbone Chair in 1949. The chair is originally crafted with
an envelope woven seat, but this special edition is woven in a double, ‘plain weave’ pattern, which requires
double the amount of time to complete for a skilled weaver.

“The celebration of Hans J. Wegner,
born on April 2nd, 1914, has become a tradition
at Carl Hansen & Søn. Every year, we aim to
create a vision which brings out something new
to the integrity of the Wishbone Chair, without
compromising Wegner’s original design.
We believe that this double woven seat meets
these requirements, and we are happy to share
this exclusive edition of the Wishbone Chair with
design enthusiast all over the world. ”

The Designer Favourite!
The Multi-Lite was first drawn in 1972 when Louis Weisdorf did an exception to his own design custom of using multiple repeating elements. Instead it reflects his passion for diversity. The Multi-Lite pendant has two individual rotating shades and can be transformed into multiple combinations where the light can be directed upwards, downwards or exude an assymetrical art light. The lamp is available in different colors and all the shades are white lacquered inside.
