$12,500Asking Price

About

A gorgeous example of Wegner's lyrical AT-304 drop-leaf dining table in figured teak and white oak; complete with original brass hardware featuring an innovative tooth and pawl catch mechanism which allows both leaves to lock into place by simply raising the hinged panels by hand. To 'drop' the leaf, one simply presses upward on the end of brass rod while lifting the leaf an inch or so, then the panel slides gently back down to its resting position; the effortless conversion can be done in under 30 seconds with one hand. The ingenious extension system Wegner employed here functions both structurally and aesthetically; its mechanical simplicity allows the table's construction to remain light and open, and the sweeping lines drawn by the brass stretchers mirror the overall shape of the piece, enhancing its formal expression. Width is 93.63 inches with both leaves extended.

About the Designer

Hans J. Wegner

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.
