No. GE375 Gentlemen Lounge Chair by Hans J. Wegner for GETAMA, 1960s

$2,177.67

About

Designed by Hans Jörgen Wegner for Getama in the late 60s this solid oak chair No. GE375 is definitely part of the Danish design classics. It is still produced to this day, a testimony to it's fit with contemporary interior design. This chair boasts a combination of simple but elegant design with carpentry craftsmanship. Recently this chair has been reupholstered in the original fabric design with a wool Kvadrat fabric. On the bottom of the chair there is the original Getama stamp. We elected to not refinish the oak frame to preserve the patina of 50+ years of use and the originality of the make to differentiate over newer Editions. Overall the chair is in a very good vintage condition with a patina that is just right and some minimal damages because of use and age.

About the Designer

Hans J. Wegner

Best known for his chairs and seating pieces — though a master of many furniture types like sofas and tablesHans Wegner was a prolific designer whose elegant, often ebullient, forms and devotion to the finest methods in joinery made "Danish Modern" a popular byword for stylish, well-made furniture in the mid-20th century.

Wegner considered himself a carpenter first and a furniture designer second. Like his peers Arne Jacobsen and Finn Juhl, Wegner believed that striking aesthetics in furniture were based on a foundation of practicality: a chair must be comfortable and sturdy before it is chic.

In keeping with that tenet, several of Wegner’s best chair designs, seen in dealer listings below, have their roots in traditional seating forms. The Peacock chair (designed in 1947) is a throne-like adaptation of the Windsor chair; pieces from the China chair series (begun in 1944) as well as the 1949 Wishbone chair, with its distinctive Y-shaped back splat, are derived from 17th-century Ming seating pieces, as is the upholstered Ox chair (1960). Wegner’s comfy Papa Bear chair (1951) is an almost surreally re-scaled English wingback chair.

Wegner’s most representative piece, the Round chair (1949), gained a footnote in political history when it was used on the TV stage of the first Kennedy-Nixon debate of 1960. That chair, along with Wegner’s more bravura designs, for example the 1963 Shell chair, with its curved surfboard-shaped seat, bring a quietly sculptural presence to a room. Wegner was a designer who revered his primary material — wood — and it shows. His wood gathers patina and character with age; every Hans Wegner piece testifies to the life it has led.
