The Wishbone Chair is an internationally recognised design icon, and one of Wegner’s most notable creations (he designed over 500 chairs during the course of his life). Since it’s production began in 1950, the Wishbone Chair has been made with the same 14 parts which require 100 separate processes and approximately three weeks of preparation.
Weaving is one of the final processes of the Wishbone’s construction, which is still a hand-woven process kept in Denmark. The paper cord used for the weaving was adopted in after World War II when materials were scarce in Europe.The material is incredibly strong and has a life cycle of approximately 50 years.
Our Danish vintage dining chairs employ a Danish cord seat pattern often seen used by Niels Moller.
