Truly inspiring evening at Ikonhouse - a rare opportunity to meet Kasper Holst Pedersen, PP Mobel’s Master of Craftsmen, and to hear his family’s incredible story. His grandfather set up his workshop in the early 1950s when the young Hans J. Wegner was at the beginning of his design career. The company has been crafting (not making, crafting) Wegner’s iconic chairs for decades and the family business keeps the Wegner legacy alive. Sustainability, precision, natural beauty of wood and unparalleled design were all key messages that came through.
Godmorgon ☕️ Efter en natt i Köpenhamn i måndags så gick gårdagen mest ut på att äta friterat och bli människor igen.. 😂 Nu blir det frulle sen ska jag försöka hämta resten av nya stolarna 👌🏼💌 HUR fina? #ystol#wegnerchairs
The Copenhagen Cabinet-makers’ Guild Exhibition 1963 Stand 16 - Wegner’s laminated three legged chair in painted colours, designed for industrial production, was a challenging design to show at the annual Guild Exhibition. At the time only the production of vast numbers could justify the high cost of tooling and very few chairs were made. Finally in 1998 the design was successfully put into commercial production by Carl Hansen & Søn as CH07.

LOOKING BACK TO TOMORROW - We reizen terug in de tijd met het meest gevraagde design dat 40, 50, 60 jaar geleden is ontworpen. Veel van de iconische meubels zijn verkrijgbaar in een actuele versie. ⭐️ Zoals de SMILING CHAIR van Hans J. Wegner zien uit 1963, welke nu geproduceerd wordt met handgeweven zijden stoffen van Jim Thompson. De collectie van Carl Hansen & Søn bestaat uit 16 verschillende stoffen en houtsoorten. 👉 Meer iconische meubels 'nieuwe stijl' vind je in Scandivanian Living #8
The Copenhagen Cabinet-makers’ Guild Exhibition 1959 Stand 6 - On the cusp of the 1960’s, Wegner exhibited two refined variations of a Sawbuck Chair (JH523) he had designed for Johannes Hansen the previous year. Significantly, the version sporting a red frame is prescient of the coming decades fashion for brightly painted furniture. #wegnerchairs#wegner#hansjwegner#JohannesHansen#scandinaviandesign#danishdesign
The Copenhagen Cabinet-makers’ Guild Exhibition 1957 Stand 5 - The night before the exhibition Wegner completed the substantial upholstery of a new muscular design in the idiom of his so called ‘Cattle Chairs’.

In 2013, a variation (JH522) designed in 1960 purportedly sold at auction in London for £122.500.00 GBP .
