Hans Wegner


Hans Wegner (1914-2007) is among the most prolific, successful, and influential masters of the Danish Modern School. He designed over 500 pieces that were produced variously by Fritz Hansen, P.P.Mobler, Getamae, and Johannes Hansen, and distributed in the USA by Knoll. His Chair #501, widely known as The Chair, demonstrated Wegner's ability to combine the highest standards of form, material, and comfort in a single everyday object, epitomizing the balance of beauty and utility that was the goal of 20th Century Danish design.
