About

Hans J. Wegner JH570 dining table with expandable leaves for Johannes Hansen. This impressive, well preserved example has been cleaned and professionally refreshed with a hand-polished oil finish. As these images illustrate, the dining top surface is stunning! The natural luster and wood selection sets it apart, with a dramatic bookend grain that follows the table S-Form. Robust stained oak legs taper elegantly to the floor. Handsome brass hardware extends on both sides to support the two 20.5" teak leaves. When not in use boards stow away underneath. Seats up to 10 comfortably. Highly functional, highly elegant, sought after table by the master of Scandinavian Modern furniture. Proudly marked with the Johannes Hansen branded stamp on the underside. Made in Denmark, 1953. Full table size measures 118.25" long.

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.
