Every one of the chairs that Hans J. Wegner designed for Carl Hansen & Søn has its own serial number—the Wishbone Chair, for instance, is CH24, and the Shell Chair is CH07. In 2010, the company added another Wegner serial number to its roster: CH468, also known as the Oculus Chair. Though Wegner designed the chair in 1960, it did not enter production until three years after his death—a midcentury icon, deferred. •
