Y Chair by Hans Wegner

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.

Not cheap, but a nice Wegner chair in ash manufactured in 1947 according to the dealer.

The number of the Peacock Chair is PP550 which indicates it is a product of PP Møbler.
