Who is

Hans Wegner (1914-2007)

Born in 1914 in Denmark, Hans Wegner is a Danish architect and designer. He studied at the School of Crafts in Copenhagen with the ambition to become an architect. At the age of 17, he made his first wooden creations. Soon, he created his design agency and quickly met with great success. With "The Chair », his success took on an international dimension. John F. Kennedy, then a candidate at the US presidential election, commissioned this chair for the presidential debate against Richard Nixon to ease his back pain. Hans Wegner is considered as one of the founding fathers of Scandinavian design. The shape and organic design of his furniture quickly became symbols of Scandinavian modernism. All furniture (chairs, armchairs, tables and sofa) of the Danish designer have simple and timeless lines, and were primarily designed to be functional.
