100 years ago Hans Wegner was born. The Danish Design Museum has devoted a special exhibition to Hans Wegner. Car Hansen & Son has teamed up with British fashion designer Paul Smith who created striped fabric with Maharam. Carl Hansen created limited editions with the Paul Smith/Maharam striped collection. The cushion in this Y or Wishbone Chair (the CH 24) is one of the examples. However I do believe the Y Chair doesn’t need a cushion….and if you have a second look at this photo you’ll see and agree with me an ordinary cushion – even with famous stripes – doesn’t fit here….
In spring 2014 I’ve visited both the museum and the Carl Hansen showroom in Copenhagen. Hence I’ve many photo’s to share with you.
Found this in Carl Hansen’s Copenhagen Showroom,
This chair is upholstered in Paul Smith designed fabric.
I add a Video here:
Carl Hansen and Son have launched the CH 88 chair that thusfar only had been produced as a prototype, to commemorate Hans Wegner’s 100rth birthday.
Recently I took some photo’s at Carl Hansen and Son’s Copenhagen Flagship store at Bredgade 21.
