Hans J Wegner was a champion of natural materials and simplicity in design, and his chairs offer the perfect combination of form and function, enhanced by the beauty of those materials.
The deceptively simple 1956 Elbow chair, with its pleasingly curved back, highlights the grain of the oak wood he used. It’s available as shown or with a round seat pad.
Danish furniture designer, Hans J. Wegner was a pioneer of Organic Functionality, which seamlessly merged natural shapes with practical applications. His designs significantly contribute to the international popularity of mid-century Danish design. In his lifetime he designed over 500 different chairs, over 100 of which were put into mass production and many became design icons. His most iconic designs include the Y Chair, the CH07 Lounge Chair, the Ox Chair, the Style Hoop Chair, The Chair and the Wing Chair.
"A chair is to have no backside. It should be beautiful from all sides and angles."
