Pair of Hans J. Wegner Model 34/1 "Airport Chairs", Denmark, 1957, A.P. Stolen

About

Stunning pair of Hans J. Wegner airport chairs model 34/1 on steel legs. These come with the original leather, hard to find chairs, great looking and comfortable. Hans J. Wegner was certified as a joiner in 1931. After starting his career as a furniture craftsman, he entered the joiners course in the technological institute, where he graduated in 1938. He opened his own office in 1943. Demonstrating a deep understanding of furniture as a tool for everyday life, his designs are characterized by a dedication and adherence to functionality and comfort. His works are artistic and beautiful and at the same time practical and useful. He has thus succeeded in eliminating the apparent contradiction between these two worlds. His long career has established him as one of the prolific designers in Denmark, and he became famous internationally as well. His works grace the permanent collections of many of the world's most prestigious art museums. Light/medium wear, plenty of patina, some scratching and knocks to leather but a great look.

About Hans J. Wegner (Designer)

Best known for his chairs and seating pieces — though a master of many furniture types like sofas and tables — Hans 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 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.
