EARLY HEART TABLE AND CHAIRS
BY HANS J. WEGNER Sold
One of the most important and influencial designers in history, Hans J. Wegner (1914-2007) is commonly credited as a driving force in the midcentury Danish modern movement – an era that forever changed the way the world looks at design and furniture.
Wegner designed this so-called ‘heart’ set for Fritz Hansen in the early fifties. Both table and chairs are 3-legged, making it a clever and compact set-up for 6, although the diameter of the table is just 120cm.
Our set is a first edition in oak and teak and was acquired by the first owner in 1968. The set is in a remarkable condition for its age and has wonderful patina on the oak frames.
