On the one hand there are 13 color palette "official" by Carl Hansen & Son: maroon and orange-reddish, dark green, slight variations of blue and purple and a neutral range from white to black. Across a dozen unique colors for the Wishbone Chair launched in 2010 when the famous furniture made 60 years. These are divided into three classes of color - Ocean, Energy and Citrus - and include light green, sea blue, pale purple and another shade of white.
Wegner often used the color during the design phase of painting the prototypes of white to get a better sense of form and color used as a tool to find the balance between form and function. It was also known to combine traditional forms with modern experimentation and the Wishbone Chair - inspired by the chairs of the Chinese emperors - it is the main example. The perfect combination of the classic silhouette of the Wishbone Chair and a modern color palette emphasizes the visionary nature of the work of Wegner and the unchanged value of its projects.

He believed that the design of the perfect chair was a never-ending process, and was not afraid to make bold decisions and innovative in his search for the ideal. We think he would like to update their projects to satisfy and delight the new generations. The range of colors 25 offers customers today many possibilities and at the same time inform the creativity of the projects-symbol Wegner. "
