The Quiet Power of Hans Wegner

In starting to think about this blog, Hans Wegner chairs kept appearing in my mind. They are an iconic expression of wood design and craftsmanship lodged deep in my consciousness. So simple and unassuming, yet so thoughtfully and exactingly composed and executed, with a Jedi Master's focus on detail. (CH37 Chair, 1962, Hans Wegner for Carl Hansen & Son.)
