Hans Wegner Tondern Table
In the 1960s, Hans Wegner (pronounced veg-ner in English) softened the edges of what was typically thought of as Danish modern. Eliminating the sharpness found in other designersâ€™ tables and chairs had an impact on aesthetics and comfort, the latter of which was paramount to this designer. The bull-nose edge on the Tondern Table (2009) is an example of this, in how it gives the table a more elegant, finished look, while also making the table edge more comfortable for diners. Another classic Wegner touch is the use of two woods: walnut and oak.
- The brass trestle provides sturdy support with a minimal amount of material.
- The exposed hardware is in keeping with Wegnerâ€™s belief that nothing should cover up or interfere with functionality.
- Made in U.S.A.
