The Wegner Prize was formed in 2015 on the occasion of Hans J. Wegner’s 100th birthday.
Behind the Wegner Price stands the Art Museum in Tønder and the Municipality of the city of Tønder.
This year the prize goes to the Cabinetmakers’ Autumn Exhibition.
The ceremony took place at the Art Museum in Tønder where Karin Carlandar and Gert Kjeldtoft received the award on behalf of the Cabinetmakers’ Autumn Exhibition.
The Cabinetmakers’ Autumn Exhibition exhibits innovative furniture of high utilitarian craftsmanship and artistic quality and is thus a platform for the country’s most talented furniture designers.
The prize comes with a Wishbone chair – as seen in the picture above.
