Hans J. Wegner is one of the leading designers of traditional Danish furniture design.
His work has a solid foundation, namely extensive carpenter training, and is rooted in a family tradition of craftsmen. He had already learned how to use shapes and tools in his father’s shoe factory. During his studies in Copenhagen, he met masters of the Danish art of furniture making. Wegner takes ideas from artistic joinery from all over the world and makes them particularly Danish.
The models of the Y Chair come from China. The Y with its backrest resembles the natural fork of a branch. The curved seat is a reference to the grass along the shallow shores of the Danish landscape and continues the tradition of the northwest European utilitarian chair.
