Please note: there is no makers stamp or label to this piece. Hans j. Wegner (1914 - 2007) was a pioneer of danish modern—a minimalist style of wood furniture—and one of scandinavia’s most admired designers. Wegner trained as a cabinet maker before bringing the skills and techniques he acquired during his apprenticeship to furniture design. He worked predominantly with wood and other natural finishes, eschewing the industrial materials that largely defined modernism in the rest of europe, and establishing the organic functionality that would become the hallmark of mid-century scandinavian design. A prolific designer, wegner created over three hundred chairs during his career and garnered international recognition for several of his designs. Chief among them was an armchair that earned a place in the museum of modern art’s low-cost furniture design competition in 1948, and the wishbone chair (1950), whose clean construction and elegantly tapered lines embody the visual warmth and lightness that became associated with wegner’s work. Condition: wonderful original condition with minor age related wear consistent with its 70 years of age, no restorations, solid to joint, fabulous golden patina. Dimensions: Width: 53.94” / 137cm. Depth: 21.66” / 55cm. Height: 28.35” / 72cm. Seat height: 14.97” / 38cm.
