Own a Piece of Design History
Now’s your chance to take home a piece by one of the most renowned Danish designers of all time, Hans Wegner!
A true master of modernism, Wegner’s combination of organic materials and functional forms are both visually pleasing and seriously comfortable. The oak has a lovely, warm finish, evoking a sense of elegance and style that is indisputably timeless.
Sink into forest green upholstery on the famous GE 290 Plank Chair, spark your creativity with Wegner's GE 125 desk manufactured by Getama, and admire the lovely combination of oak and steel in the Drawers for Ry Mobler years and years to come.
