Hans J. Wegner is a world-famous Danish designer known primarily for his numerous chair designs. Wegner had a special ability to combine functionality and aesthetics. Many of his projects have amusing or poetic qualities. Wegener is known as one of the pioneers of Danish modernism and one of the key figures in the golden age of Nordic design. He has received numerous design awards in his career, including the Lunning Prize and the Grand Prix at the Milan Triennial in 1951, the Prince Eugen Medal in 1961, and the C. F. Hansen Medal in 1980. Getam is the epitome of something truly Danish. Excellent craftsmanship, quality and the highest level of service have made the factory known and respected throughout Denmark. This was mainly due to the collaboration with Hans Wegner who helped Gedsted Tang-of Madrasfabrik make an international breakthrough as a furniture company. As a result of this breakthrough, the company had to come up with a shorter and more international name, so in 1953 Gedsted Tang-og Madrasfabrik became Getama. Getama’s ambition, after over a hundred years, is still to create innovative furniture designed by the best architects.
The set is in original vintage condition with normal traces of age. The armchair has the same height and depth as the sofa. The width of the armchair is 78 cm.
