In celebration of Hans J. Wegner’s 110th birthday on April 2nd, 2024, Carl Hansen & Søn has reimagined his iconic CH24 Wishbone Chair for children. This captivating, sculptural design mirrors the original in miniature, handcrafted from FSC™-certified solid oak and woven paper cord. Same iconic design, just smaller. 


The CH24 Children’s Wishbone Chair is available online, in Carl Hansen & Søn Flagship Stores, and selected dealers from April 2nd, 2024.

1949 - 2024

The CH24 Wishbone Chair was one of the first ideas presented by the young designer, Hans J Wegner, in 1949 to Holger Hansen, second-generation owner of Carl Hansen & Søn. Seeing great promise in Wegner’s innate ability to blend innovative new forms with traditional craft, the pair began a collaboration that would last for many years. Characterised by a sculptural steam-bent frame and signature wishbone back-rest, the chair introduced a new and modern typology that championed simplicity, quality materials and, first and foremost, comfort.


In constant production since 1950, the Wishbone Chair has been coveted for generations and admired for its warm, timeless appeal. Carl Hansen & Søn is delighted to present this cherished design for a younger generation of future design enthusiasts who can grow to appreciate beautiful craftsmanship.

“We’ve been dreaming of making a child-sized version of the iconic Wishbone Chair for years now, and we’re delighted with the result. This smaller version of the Wishbone Chair blends in perfectly with the rest of a household’s furniture and is an ideal gift idea for future design enthusiasts.”

- Knud Erik Hansen, CEO and third-generation owner of Carl Hansen & Søn.
