Iconic Wegner chairs feature new wood combination! Wegner’s profound understanding of the properties of wood are expressed in new oak-and-walnut versions of three iconic Wegner chairs. Here, the commemorative edition of the celebrated Wishbone Chair. I just love the elegant contrasts in this new two-toned Wishbone Chair, which never before has been produced in mixed wood.
As Carl Hansen & Son celebrates the 100th anniversary of Hans J. Wegner’s birth, the spotlight falls on Wegner’s extraordinary understanding of wood. Carl Hansen & Son has selected three iconic Wegner chairs to tell the story of the designer’s work on combining different types of wood. In addition to Wegner’s classic CH33 chair, his iconic Wishbone Chair and Sawbuck Chair have, for the first time ever, also been produced in a fusion of oak and walnut.
Wegner’s original compositions often combined teak and oak or beech. Carl Hansen & Son has opted for a fusion of oak and walnut as a popular modern-day variant. The combination of light and dark wood produces a harmonious contrast, as evidenced in the world premiere of the two-toned Wishbone Chair above, which never before has been produced in mixed wood. The Wishbone Chair’s iconic back and backrest in walnut provide an elegant contrast to the oak frame, in tribute to Wegner’s favored material.
The commemorative oak-and-walnut Wishbone Chair (CH24), Sawbuck Chair (CH29), CH33 chair and CH327 dining table will be available in shops from April 2014
