"If only you could design just one good chair in your life,” famed Danish designer Hans Wegner was quoted as saying in 1952. “But you simply cannot.”
Impress your friends with this most nerdish of memory games, Hans Wegner Chairs Memory Game! Or what about the Skagen Painters Memory Game ?
He was not joking. Wegner, one of Denmark’s most prolific and iconic designers, ended up creating over 500 chairs and 1,000 other pieces of furniture in his lifetime--a feat that earned him the nickname the “King of Chairs.”
Just One Good Chair, a new exhibition at Designmuseum Danmark, celebrates the 100th anniversary of Wegner’s birth by showcasing more than 150 of his most innovative furniture designs, alongside drawings, photos, and models, offering insight into his working process.
The most popular and iconic of his chairs is exhibited at the Danish Design Museum in Bredgade 68 near by the royal residence, Amalienborg.
