Hans.J. Wegner (Denmark, 1914-2007) / About Hans J. Wegner
Wegner was born in 1914 in Tuner, a town on the Danish-German border to a shoemaker. Furniture craftsman HF Stalberg studied furniture under him and obtained a cabinet craftsman's license at the age of 17. Three years later he moved to Copenhagen, where he attended a craft school from 1936 to 1938 before beginning his career as a designer. In 1940, Wegner participated in the architectural project of Arne Jacobsen and Eric Muller for the Aarhus City Hall, and is also known for designing the furniture to be installed there. This year also saw the start of collaboration with Johannes Hansen, a furniture workshop that has made great contributions to the world of Danish design.
One of the most creative and original designers in the Danish design world, Wegner is known as the master of chairs, having designed more than 500 chairs. And many of them are now internationally acclaimed as masterpieces.
Wegner, who was often asked by people outside of Denmark, ``How was that unique style called Danish Modern created?'' I think it was made by.For me, it's a work to make it simpler.The four legs, the seat surface, the back, the arms, and the frame that connects them are all necessary and wasteful. It's about stripping away the elements." In pursuit of simple beauty and functionality, he reveals the core of the furniture, what can be called the essence of the furniture. This can be said to be Wegner's greatest achievement.
