Wishbone Style Chair
Hans Jørgensen Wegner was a celebrated Danish furniture designer. His high quality and thoughtful work, along with a determined effort from several of his manufacturers, contributed to the international popularity of mid-century Danish design. His approach is often described as “Organic Functionality”, a modernist institution with importance on functionality. In his lifetime he created over several hundred different chairs, over 100 of which were put into mass production and many of which have become familiar design icons.
Wegner worked for some time for Arne Jacobsen, a thriving Danish designer. Wegner was in charge of the furniture in the Aarhus Municipal Hall, which Jacobsen designed. After some years under Jacobsen, Wegner started his own company. Along with fellow architect Børge Mogensen, he designed furniture for FDB (a Danish chain of grocery stores), organized by Erik Kold – who initiated an organization of Danish furniture producers which marketed Danish design abroad.+ Details + Shipping & Delivery
