Herein lies the magic of Carl Hansen & Son. Clients with an eye for Scandi design will find in them beautiful, enduring style that stands the test of time, a result of their meticulous production process. Each Wishbone Chair takes 3 weeks to make and is the result of 100 intricate steps, from chiselling and carving through to the wrapping of 400ft of paper cord to create the perfect seat.
Time-honoured techniques in today’s context are a rare thing and one of the reasons that Carl Hansen & Son are a necessary antidote to today’s endless cycle of fast fashion and throwaway consumer culture. Each of the limited edition CH24 Wishbone is made to order and comes with a badge of authenticity to mark this moment in design history.
Scandinavian design is characterised by the need to break down artificial walls while finding the purest design language possible. The CH24 Wishbone Chair in red leather does so marvellously while celebrating the legacy of one of Denmark’s finest designers. Available online at Chaplins on the 2nd April 2019.
