Wishbone Chair

For years I've admired this chair in my doctor's office. It's delicate and light.
I was surprised to see it in the MOMA catalogue for $650. The designer's name is Hans J. Wegner and he designed the chair in 1950 inspired by "classical portraits of Danish merchants sitting in Ming chairs". The 2005 Fall MOMA catalogue goes on "Wegner created an iconic series of chairs that helped establish Denmark as an international leader of modern design".
