HANS J. WEGNER BIRTHDAY EDITION CH24 I MAHOGANY HIGH GLOSS LACQUER 

This year the special edition is crafted in exclusive mahogany adding an extra touch of warmth and rarity to the iconic chair.

To celebrate Hans J. Wegner’s impressive legacy, this year’s specially made Wishbone Chair will be produced in a limited special edition from certified mahogany, an exclusive and noble wood which is well known for its deep, uniform colour. Historically, mahogany has been used to make furniture since the 15th century, and during the 16th and 17th centuries the exotic wood was the preferred material for furniture-making, particularly on account of its strength and stability. The Wishbone Chair in mahogany has a beautiful surface with reddish-brown hues which are accentuated and protected by a strong high-gloss lacquer that gives the chair a shiny finish. The special edition has a small brass plate engraved with Hans J. Wegner’s signature and date of birth discreetly placed on the inside of the chair frame. It also comes with a certificate of authenticity

HANS J. WEGNER BIRTHDAY EDITION CH24 I MAHOGANY HIGH GLOSS LACQUER

  • Hans J. Wegner

    As a driving force behind 'Danish Modern', Hans J. Wegner helped change the general public's view of furniture in the 1950s and 1960s. His passion for designing chairs, more than 500 of them, is recognized worldwide and reflected in his title 'the Master of the Chair'. He is famous for integrating perfectly executed joints with exquisite shapes and combining them with a constant curiosity for materials and deep respect for wood and its natural characteristics. His designs furnish minimalism with organic and natural softness. Hans J. Wegner was born in 1914 in Tønder in Southern Denmark, the son of a shoemaker. At the age of 17, he completed his apprenticeship as a cabinetmaker in the workshop of H. F. Stahlberg where his first designs saw the light of day. At the age of twenty he moved to Copenhagen, Denmark, to attend the School of Arts and Crafts, where he studied from 1936-1938 before embarking on a career as an architect.
