In 1948, the then promising young furniture designer Hans J. Wegner launched a series of light furniture, which excelled by being manufactured using plywood. The collection was originally produced by Fritz Hansen, but disappeared from the market in 1950.
Last year, CEO Jesper Temp from the furniture factory Getama succeeded in acquiring the rights to the furniture series, and after having developed the necessary tools, Getama could present the furniture at the Stockholm Furniture Fair in February 2015.
The furniture range includes the GE1935 bench, the GE1936 chair and the GE1937 table. On both chair and bench, the seat and back are cut loose from the frame, creating a light and elegant expression. On all models, the frame is made of solid oak, while the seat, back and tabletop are made of plywood-walnut bent in two dimensions.
The new furniture collection hits stores in March.
