Danish, 1914-2007. Renowned designer of the iconic Danish chair, Hans J. Wegner believed in incorporating a playful angle to his otherwise functional designs. He is considered one of the pioneering Danish designers of the 20th-century. Though a master of types of furniture, Wegner is best known for his seating pieces and chairs. He was a firm believer in the fact that the functionality of the furniture was as important as aesthetics. In his career spanning nearly seven decades, Wegner created almost 500 pieces. He creates the iconic Wishbone Chair in 1950 and it has been in production since then.
