The wishbone chair, crafted by Hans J. Wegner in the late 1940s, is also one of the most famous symbols of Danish furniture design. Known for his ability to bring together form and function, the ‘Y’ back shape was used in order to provide comfortable, yet minimal back support. Its similarity to the shape of the wishbone inspired the chair’s name.
Part of a series inspired by portraits of Danish merchants in Ming Chairs, the Wishbone Chair is a true testament to craftsmanship. This chair took its inspiration from the Ming chair, which is originally from China. Using the best natural materials, the Wishbone chair is made to last for generations.
The wood frame, paper cord seat, and simple design also highlight how you can have luxurious, ergonomically designed furniture without sacrificing visual appeal. Because of the natural materials used, it’s a versatile piece that can feel modern or more traditional. Though the wishbone chair is typically used for indoor dining, don’t be afraid to throw a cushion on it and use it in an outdoor space!
