Hans Wegner Chair
Hans Wegner was a world renowned Danish furniture designer. His high quality and thoughtful work, along with a concerted effort from several of his manufacturers, contributed to the international popularity of mid-century Danish design.His style is often described as Organic Functionality, a modernist school with emphasis on functionality. This school of thought arose primarily in Scandinavian countries with contributions by Poul Henningsen, Alvar Aalto and Arne Jacobsen. In his lifetime Wegner designed over 500 different chairs, over 100 of which were put into mass production and many of which have become recognisable design icons, such as the Wishbone Chair and The Chair.
Getama was founded in 1899 and is a Danish manufacturer of classic and contemporary furniture. Hans Wegner began working with Getama over 60 years ago and their collaboration provided for many classics that continue to be produced. The designs of Hans Wegner are highly appreciated for design, quality and durability and have become collector's items and best-sellers.
