Hans J. Wegner started his career as a furniture maker but soon became one of Denmark's most outstanding designers and architects. He is sometimes called "the champion of the chair", which is unsurprising since he designed over 500 pieces during the course of his career. The most famous is probably the Wishbone chair or Y-chair as it is also commonly called.


Hans J. Wegner had a penchant for wood and always worked with respect for the material and its natural qualities. He had an incredible sense of detail and was known for integrating perfectly made joints with soft organic shapes. He was also a master of combining shape with function and always kept a focus on ergonomics and comfort. For Hans J. Wegner, a chair was not just a piece of furniture but an artwork designed to support the human form.


Hans J. Wegner was not just a furniture maker, he was also a skilled lamp designer. His ceiling lamp "The Pendant" has been in production since it was designed in 1962 and is a clear example of Hans J. Wegner's timeless design and touch.
