HANS J. WEGNER
Hans J. Wegner is considered one of the greatest furniture designers of the 20th century, creating more than 1000 designs throughout his career. Wegner's designs have often been described as 'iconic', 'timeless' and 'free from passing trends'. With a craftmanlike, pragmatic approach to designing furniture, Henrik Most described Wegner's approach as follows, 'The biggest freedom stems from the most severe strictness'. In the dialogue between material and creativity, Wegner surpassed most of his peers and is one of the mid-century's most notable designers.
