Please stay seated—In our opinion, a Hans Wegner chair can make taking a stand look terribly overrated.
Like fellow Danish designer Arne Jacobsen, Hans Wegner made spic and span work of balancing style with function. A passionate advocate of the chair, a survey of Hans Wegner’s furniture reveals no less than 500 chair designs. Driven by the notion that a chair has no backside, Wegner strove to make it beautiful from all angles. Manifestations of his endeavors include the wildly successful Wishbone Chair, which, like other Hans Wegner pieces, is easy on the eyes—and even more heavenly on the body.
