Hans Wegner designed the Wishbone Chair in 1949. This is one of his most iconic pieces of furniture, it is strong yet very lightweight. It is a very challenging chair to make as the legs are made of solid wood which is steam-bent. The seat is also made of hand-woven paper cord. The chair is made from very durable materials so that it will last for generations.

The Wishbone chair by Hans Wegner was designed in 1949 together with Carl Hansen. He designed over 500 chairs in his life.
