Hans J. Wegner (1914 Tønder, Denmark – 2007) was a famous Danish designer, renowned for his furniture designs.
In his lifetime he designed over 500 different chairs, over 100 of which were put into mass production and many of which have become recognizable design icons.
His designs were praised for their beauty as well as their functionality and Wegner received many prizes for his work: the Lunning Prize in 1951, the Eckersberg Medal in 1955, and the 8th International Design Award in 1997, among others.
Many of Wegner’s designs are included in permanent collections of famous international museums like the MoMa in New York, the Stedelijk museum in Amsterdam and Die Neue Sammlung in Munich.
