Hans Wegner Model AP 33 Sofa for Anker Petersen Stolen

$2,888

About

A rare 4-seat edition of the classic Model AP 33 sofa by Hans Wegner for Anker Petersen Stolen. The sleek, clean lines of the sofa rest on 6 oak legs. AP Stolen was also a celebrated cabinet maker and the manufacturer of Wegner's beloved 'Papa Bear' chair. The same quality of craftsmanship is evident in this sofa - and actually visible through the bottom, if the sofa is turned on its back. The upholstery appears to be original and is in very good condition. The seat and back are firm. Dimensions: 99" W x 30.5" D x 30.5" H Seat height: 15.5" Designer: Hans Wegner Manufacturer: A.P. Stølen.

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 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.
