Furniture Design

Wegner, Hans J. (1914 - 2007)

The Danish designer had originally trained as a cabinetmaker which contributed to his master and love of wood. He gained international recognition in the 1950s in particular with his “Round Chair” that was referred to, in America, as “the world's most beautiful chair.” He privileged natural materials and aimed to design furniture that would be beautiful yet functional. Considered today the master of seats, he conceived more than 500 chairs.
