Hans J.Wegner

Hans J.Wegner was born in 1914 in Toder, Denmark, the son of a shoemaker.
     At the age of 17, he finished his apprenticeship as a cabinetmaker with H.F.Stahlberg, in whose workshops Wegner`s first design experiments took form. He moved to Copenhagen as a 20 year-old, and attended the School of Arts and Crafts from 1936 -1938 before he began working as an architect. 
     As a young architect, Wegner joined Arne Jacobsen and Erik Moller in Arhus,working on furniture design for the new Arhus city hall in 1940. It was during the same year that Wegner began collaborating with master cabinetmaker, Johannes Hansen, who was a driving force in bringing new furniture design to the Danish public. 
     The Copenhagen Museum of Art and Industry acquired its first Wegner chair in 1942. 
     Wegner started his own design office in 1943. It was in 1944 that he designed the first "Chinese chair" in a series of new chairs that were inspired by portraits of Danish merchants sitting in Ming chairs. One of these chairs, the "wishbone Chair" designed in 1950 and produced by Carl Hansen & Son in Odense, became the most successful of all Wegner chairs. 
    Among Danish furniture designers, Hans J. Wegner is considered one of the most creative and productive. He has received practically every major recognition given to designers, including the Lunning prize, the grand prix of the Milan Triennale, Sweden`s Prince Eugen medal and the Danish Eckersberg medal. Wegner is an honorary Royal designer for industry of the Royal Society of Arts in London. Almost all of the world`s major design museums from The Museum of Modern Art in New York to Die Neue Sammlung in Munich -include his furniture in their collections.
    Hans J. Wegner died January 26th 2007
