wish upon a chair...

denmark designer hans j wegner created the wishbone chair for carl hansen & sons back in 1949.
 the chair has been in production without  interruption since 1950.
the chair designed as both a dining chair and the perfect chair for relaxing. its gentle bent top rail allows both comfort and movement. the chairs design involves more than 100 by hand production steps in order to produce its beautiful y shaped back and form and the seat is hand-woven by 120 metres of paper cord said to last up to 50 years.
the chair is still today one of the brands most popular pieces and became best known when it was used in the famous tv debate of  presidents john kennedy and richard nixon.
