Both Ole Wanscher and Hans J. Wegner are considered pioneers of furniture design, shaping the mid-century trends in interior design and offering pieces with the longevity to remain stylish and relevant today. Working with original sketches, designs and specifications, the prestigious Denmark-based company Carl Hansen & Søn intricately crafts both designers’ pieces with the same integrity and skill as when they were originally launched throughout the 1900s. Working with the finest weavers, joiners and materials possible, the original designs are updated and renewed to ensure each chair lives on throughout the 21st century.
