Hans Wegner was one of the top designers of the Danish modernist movement in the fifties and sixties. I find myself very attracted to chairs, especially those created by the northern gods of design (Scandanavians). Hans Wegner produced many beautiful, simple furniture designs which often used unstained wood and woven rush seats and yet had a look of clean, intentional modernism. I also enjoy the emphasis that was always placed on craftsmanship and have tried to absorb something of this attitude in my own creative thinking.
