Designer

Hans J. Wegner at Deconet

Hans J. Wegner Hans J. Wegner must be considered as one of the most influential designers of the 20th century. Wegner has become a worldwide icon, particularly famous for his influence on Danish furniture design. Son of a shoe-maker in southern Jutland, Wegner began his long career at the age of 14. Over the years, he designed over 500 chairs with many different wood types and styles. His style is based on clean, simple lines and to Wegner a chair was an artwork as much as a functional object. One of his well-known philosophies was that a chair should be beautiful from every angle and that it should not have a backside. Though Wegner designed for series production, all of his work bears the stamp of the traditionally trained craftsman. Wegner's most famous chairs are the "Peacock", the "Y-chair", and "The Chair" which was used by Kennedy and Nixon in their famous CBS TV debate of 1960. Most of his designs were produced by Johannes Hansen, Fritz Hansen or PP Möbler, some of which are still in production today.

Maker

Johannes Hansen at Deconet

Johannes Hansen The Danish furniture manufacturer Johannes Hansen produced a number of furniture between 1940´s-1970´s. While there has been no production since then, several pieces have appeared in high-end auctions during recent years; their beauty and rarity have kept prices high. An important part of Johannes Hansen's success has been based on the fruitful cooperation with Hans J. Wegner, which was initiated in 1940. In 1941 the first peices of furniture designed by Wegner were displayed in Johannes Hansen's store in Bredgade 65 in central Copenhagen. Johannes Hansen was more than twice as old as the 26 year old Wegner but the unique collaboration between the two became the undisputed backbone of Danish furniture design and the main reason for its worldwide recognition in the fifties and sixties. The Copenhagen Museum of Art and Industry acquired the first Wegner chair in 1942. In 1944 Wegner designed for Johannes Hansen the first of a long series of 'chinese' chairs, a series of chairs inspired by portraits of Danish merchants sitting in Ming chairs. Another of his famous designs, the Peacock chair, was first introduced in 1947. The chair was manufactured for a very long time by Johannes Hansen, but was later picked up and resumed by PP Møbler in 1992, as Wegner had upgraded the basic design in the late 1980's.
