Vintage Mid-Century Modern Danish Oak & Blue Fabric Chair by Hans J. Wegner for Getama, 1960s
Delivering from: Warsaw, Poland
This modernist office chair was designed by Hans J. Wegner for the Danish manufacturer Getama Gedsted during the 1960s. The raw, geometric frame of the chair is made of light oak wood. The seat and backrest are upholstered in blue fabric. The wide seat and armrests make the chair very comfortable and ideal for use while working or studying.
Hans J. Wegner is a world-famous Danish designer known primarily for his numerous chair designs. Wegner had a special ability to combine functionality and aesthetics. Many of his projects have amusing or poetic qualities. Wegner is known as one of the pioneers of Danish modernism and one of the key figures in the golden age of Nordic design. He has received numerous design awards in his career, including the Lunning Prize and the Grand Prix at the Milan Triennial in 1951, the Prince Eugen Medal in 1961, and the C. F. Hansen Medal in 1980.
Getama is the epitome of something truly Danish. Excellent craftsmanship, quality and the highest level of service have made the factory known and respected throughout Denmark. This was mainly due to the collaboration with Hans Wegner who helped Gedsted Tang-og Madrasfabrik make an international breakthrough as a furniture company. As a result of this breakthrough, the company had to come up with a shorter and more international name, so in 1953 Gedsted Tang-og Madrasfabrik became Getama. Getama’s ambition, after over a hundred years, is still to create innovative furniture designed by the best architects.
The chair is in original vintage condition. It has traces of age, wear, scratches on the wood and discoloration on the fabric. The seat is at a height of 44 cm.
