Designer Hans Wegner (Denmark 1914-2007)
Here is the replica Wegner Wishbone chair in natural coloured beech wood with a black pad that is beautiful, durable and easy to wipe down. This is one of Wegner’s most sought after designs and with our quality replica, you can bring the same style into your home.
First designed by Hans Wegner in 1949, the production of the Wishbone chair was an incredibly complex process. The oak was first cut into planks and air-dried for nearly a year. After it was kiln dried for a few more months, the curved back was made by steam-bending the wood. “Like the Vikings when they made their ships,” Wegner explained. Generous amounts of love and workmanship went into making this chair and our Relax House replica Wishbone chair pays tribute to this icon of Modern Danish design.
Our replica wishbone chairs, seen here in a natural colour beech wood with a hard wearing and easy to clean quality faux leather pad, are constructed with care bearing in mind the design details of the original. A heavy weight of Danish modern design, Hans Wegner was seen by many as the ‘chairman’ of the chair. While his affection for and understanding of wood was nearly unparalleled, he was incredibly prolific. Wegner crafted over 1,000 pieces and more than 500 chairs. The Wishbone Chair was the first of Wegner’s chairs for Carl Hansen & Son. The success of this chair rested in its simplicity and a successful marrying of design and function.
The Wishbone chair, sometimes referred to as the Y-chair was one of the most successful industrially produced chairs. Our high end Wishbone replica is carefully crafted in the style of the original 1950 design. The Relax House replica of this iconic piece of furniture is light weight, especially for a designer arm chair. Our designer inspired replica, like the original, is relatively compact in size offering the user a spacious and welcoming seat and allowing him or her to easily change position. This makes the Wishbone design perfect for long conversations during dinner parties.
The curved back legs give our replica Wishbone dining chair an air of grace while the stylish semicircular top rail offers support to the back and adds elegance to this deceptively simple chair. The Relax House reproduction of the classic "Wishbone Chair" as it is sometimes called, is a faithful rendition of the well loved classic Wegner. Our Relax House Wishbone replica has the same wishbone shape created by the angle and shape of its back. Durable, attractive and comfortable, you will find the Relax House designer replica Wishbone chair to be a fine addition to your modern décor.
