Inspired by Hans Wegner

Hans Wegner was one of the key figures in the popular rise of mid-century Danish design. Many of his chairs have become iconic, and his name evokes recognition among collectors and novices alike. He combines traditional joinery and construction techniques, working with a number of materials, especially solid wood, plywood, upholstery, and paper-cord, to create his signature style. His sculptural touch brings definition and style to his love of simplicity and function.

  • Hans Wegner ascended to master craftsman status working as a cabinetmaker and general designer. However, it was his revolutionary approach to seating put him in high demand. His deep understanding of wood furnishings is apparent in designs rooted in traditional furnishings. The Ming chair is drawn from classic Chinese seating. Wegner also shows versatility, eschewing wood altogether with the very modern Flag Halyard chair. Regardless of the materials, these designs focus on creating shapes both memorable and comfortable.

  • Many foreigners have asked me how we made the Danish style. And I've answered that it...was rather a continuous process of purification, and for me of simplification, to cut down to the simplest possible elements of four legs, a seat and combined top rail and arm rest.
