Hans Wegner

Hans Wegner was born in 1914 in Denmark and already at an early age heshowed interest in arts and crafts; woodcarving and creating wooden sculptures.He began his career at the age of 14 with H. F. Stahlberg, a Danish cabinetmaker. Later he went to the School of Arts and Crafts in Copenhagen. In 1938, he started designing with Arne Jacobsen and during this period he also started working with Johannes Hansen.

Hans Wegner saw it as his mission to show that a piece of furniture has a soul, and tried to portray this through a simple and functional exterior. With the experience and knowledge he collected from Stahlberg, he knew on integrating joinery techniques while maintaining a beautiful look. His curiosity and interest in various types of wood and other natural resources helped him develop the skill to bring organic, natural softness to minimalistic design.

In 1943, Hans Wegner opened his own design studio where he designed many types of chairs, like the famous ‘wishbone chair’, for Carl Hansen &Søn. His nickname is ‘The Master of the Chair’, which is fitting as he created almost 500 throughout his career. Next to the ‘wishbone chair’, other famous designs of him are the ‘Papa Bear’, ‘Round’, and ‘The Chair’.

It is safe to say that Hans Wegner is one of the most renowned and creative Danish furniture designers the world has ever seen. Today, you can find Hans Wegner’s work allover the world: Copenhagen (Designmuseum Danmark), Munich (Die Neue Sammlung),and even New York (Museum of Modern Art).

Heart Dining Chairs

Beautiful set of four 'Heart' dining chairs by Hans Wegner, model FH4103. These are designed in 1953 and manufactured by Fritz Hansen. The chairs have three legs and a 'heart-shaped' seating area. They can be stacked and are practical around a (round) dining table. The chairs are made of oak with seats in teak veneer. The chairs have normal wear and tear; in our view adding to the vintage vibe and patina of these chairs. Scandinavian design at its best!
