Biography

Hans Jørgensen Wegner (April 2, 1914 - January 26, 2007) was a Danish furniture designer.[4] His work, along with a concerted effort from several of his manufacturers,[5] contributed to the international popularity of mid-century Danish design. His style is often described as Organic Functionality, a modernist school with emphasis on functionality. This school of thought arose primarily in Scandinavian countries with contributions by Poul Henningsen, Alvar Aalto, and Arne Jacobsen.[5]

Wegner has been referred to as the "King of Chairs" for his proliferated work designing seating.[6] 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.
