Hans Wegner

Hans Wegner stands as a master of 20th-century Danish Modernism. More specifically, he was instrumental in developing a body of work known as organic functionalism. His early training included both carpentry and architecture; he worked designing furniture for the Århus Town Hall in the early 1940s before establishing his own furniture studio. While he is best known for his chairs, Wegner has also created memorable cabinetry, desks, tables, beds and lighting.
