Your Wegner, Your Great Dane, Your Life

Hans Wegner’s GE 240 (nicknamed the cigar, probably due to the shape of the arm, but no doubt it could have been that many cigars have been smoked while lounging in the chair, designed in 1951, is a classic example of his work; simple organic, beautifully made and perfect for lounging in.
Wegner often said, “If you want to know the chair has been designed properly, lift it up and look underneath’. The Cigar is a great example of this, from every angle its appealing. Wegner’s complete understanding of the human form and desire to resolve his designs was amazing and something to admire.
