The original Wishbone Chair was designed back in the 1950s by Hans J. Wegner for Carl Hansen & Søn. The design has persevered over half a century due to the use of clean lines, minimalist silhouette and an overall timeless aesthetic that could fool anyone into believing the Wishbone Chair was created within the last year.

Concentrating on the stunning curvature that gives the design its iconic look, the online article takes people nearly step-by-step through the complex process. Aside from the wooden frame, the seat is hand-woven out of paper cord, which incredibly strong and has a life cycle of approximately 50 years. The result adds a homey feel to the Wishbone Chair.
