Danish Hans J. Wegner City Hall Oak Dining Chair

About the Item

Danish Hans J. Wegner "City Hall" dining chair The "City Hall chair" is one of Hans J. Wegners earliest designs made for the new iconic city hall in Aarhus that was finished in 1941 with Arne Jacobsen as architect with young Hans J. Wegner as his assistant in making a completely new city hall including lamps, furniture, ash trays and all other inventory . The design of furniture for the city hall was H.J. Wegner’s first major design task making this chair among the early chairs designed by Wegner. The chair good vintage condition and joints have been checked and reglued by our cabinetmaker to ensure that it has no loose joints Hans J. Wegner (1914-2007) is in the absolute top league Danish designers, and among the few artists that have had a whole museum opened solely to themselves. He is particularly known for his around 500 chairs, where straight designs, good functionality and beautful looks are united to perfection. Wegners further development shown in his China Chair from 1945 brought his reputation to an internatioal top level, since this model during the 1961 US election was exposed on national US television during a transmssion of a discussion between president candidates Kennedy and Nixon. Furthermore the founder of Danish furniture design modernism was known worldwide for his rocking chair J16 and the JH513 chair.
