Make a wish.

Hans Wegner admiring a model of his smoking Wing Chair.

The late Hans Wegner was born on this day 99 years ago. A prolific designer, the Danish master created more than 500 chairs in his lifetime, including the iconic Wishbone Chair (1949). Known for crafting perfectly finished joints and exquisite forms, it’s no wonder that Wegner was widely regarded as “the chair-maker of chair-makers.” On this day we raise our glasses to Hans Wegner. Make a wish!
