A wonderful example of a masterpiece by the famous Hans Wegner. A practical Valet chair that is completely organically shaped. The seat can be folded up so that it can also be used as a storage area. Under the seat there is also a tray, which was made for jewellery or similar. The Great Danish Designer Wegner works closely with his friend Borge Mogensen during the war.  In the 1940's he updates many classic designs like Windsor chairs with a modern classiness. His influence on Danish modernism can only be compared to Finn Juhl, Mogensen and Arne Jacobsen.
