Hans j. Wegner

Hans Jørgensen Wegner was a Danish architect and furniture architect. Wegner graduated in 1931 and studied at the Arts and Crafts School in Copenhagen from 1936-1938. Wegner worked as an independent architect. After 1940 he designed furniture for Danish companies. In addition to furniture, he designed silverware, wallpaper and more lamps. Wegner’s famous Hejsependel – the first time shown at the Snowmen’s Autumn Show in 1962 – is still produced by the Danish lighting producer Pandul. The same goes for the entire OPALA series that Wegner originally signed for Hotel Scandinavia in Copenhagen.
