About this designer: Hans Wegner
Hans Wegner
The work of Hans Wegner (1914-2007) is representative of the combination of excellent craftsmanship and commitment to modern living that made mid-century Danish design internationally popular. Born in Tonder, he got an early start working as a child apprentice to a carpenter. He worked as an assistant to Arne Jacobsen and Erik Møller until 1943, helping on their design for the Århus Town Hall, and adding some of his own furniture. In 1943 he opened his own office and came out with the "Chinese" chair which, along with his 1949 "Round" chair would provide the basis for many of his later chairs. Wegner’s chair designs are world renowned, his CH24 Wishbone chair and CH25 chairs are beautiful examples of Danish design. Aram Store is proud to stock many of Wegner’s designs for Carl Hansen & Son.

Description

Ask a Dane to think of a rocking chair, and she will probably name this one. J16 is the undisputed classic among the many rocking chairs designed by Hans J. Wegner over the years. The rocking chair was introduced by FDB Furniture in 1944 and has been in production ever since. In his chair design, Wegner stressed the importance of freedom of movement and ergonomics – as epitomised by the rocking chair. It is a much-cherished setting for reading, knitting and even nursing babies. To match the rocking chair Wegner also designed a footstool, a seat and back cushions, and a neck support. Both the rocking chair and footstool have hand-woven seats in natural paper yarn. The rocking chair is available in soap treated or lacquered beech as well as in soap treated, oiled, lacquered or black lacquered oak.
