Hans Wegner is one of the architects and designers who made Danish design world famous, joining Arne Jacobsen, Verner Panton, Nana Ditzel, and B?rge Mogensen. His most famous designs are his chairs, which stand out from the crowd like new letters in an alphabet. Hans Wegner’s furniture is based on the principle that good material and good craftsmanship go together hand in hand.
Although he worked with many different materials, old and modern, he loved wood above all others. His furniture is the strongest possible symbol of the union of industrial design and craft-based production. The Wishbone Chair was first presented in 1950, and was followed by a range of different chairs which have nearly all gained the status of “Classics”, sought after as collectors’ items all over the world.
