Many of our furniture designs take inspiration from famous furniture designers. Part of the education in our store is looking at the kind of influence these designers have had and I want to share a recent conversation.
Hans Wegner was a Danish furniture designer who lived April 2, 1914 – January 26, 2007. His style is often described as Organic Functionality, a modernist school of thought with focus on function. He designed over 500 chairs in his lifetime, many of which were never produced. “A chair is to have no backside. It should be beautiful from all sides and angles.”
Here are examples of how his style inspired the Boden Chair, the Paris Chair, and the Aiden Chair.
