Learn about Wegner, Hans J.

Hans J Wegner (1914–2007) attended the School of Arts and Crafts in Copenhagen at the age of 22 and worked as an assistant to Erik Møller and Arne Jacobsen before opening his own office in 1943. The real beauty of Wegner’s genius must be seen in context with his collaboration with master cabinetmaker Johannes Hansen. The attitude with which Hansen accepted the young designer’s ideas was the perfect combination between designer and craftsman. Their collaboration went on for many years, and they presented their work at the Cabinetmaker’s show every year from 1941-1966. With his love of natural materials and his deep understanding of the need for furniture to be functional as well as beautiful, Wegner made mid-century Danish design popular on an international scale. With more than 500 different chair designs Wegner is the most prolific Danish designer to date. Wegner’s design went on to win worldwide recognition through the 1950’s and 1960’s and his furniture, in particular his chairs, are to be found in the permanent collections of the world’s most prestigious museums.
