Hommage to Hans Wegner (1914-2007)

Hans Wegner, chair





This summer Design museum Gent is bringing a limited homage to Danish furniture designer – architect Hans Wegner. He is one of the designers to have made Danish design famous the world over, and he is a major name in the gallery of “Danish modernists”.
Hans Wegner made a fundamental contribution to the reputable and highly timeless Scandinavian – read: Danish – design.
Wegner’s creations not only show his enormous creativity, but also his partiality for sound workmanship and a purified style. In light of the revival of design from the 50s and 60s, the timing for this homage is on the mark.

In collaboration with Carl Hansen & Søn
