GE1935 VENUS bench
With pride WonderWood presents the re-edition of Hans Wegner's Shell bench and chair. Venus bench and chair illustrate designer and cabinet-maker Hans J.Wegner's genius by showing features of his main masterpieces: fine material, refined joining, curved, pure and light lines, simplicity.
Hans J. Wegner choose the plywood because first, it was the only technique possible
to create a such shape a and secondly, it provides an higher breaking strength.
These iconic design pieces are orginally designed in 1935-1936 and re-issued today in Denmark. The frame is made of solid oak, while the seat and back are produced in walnut or light oak.
The Venus Range is an example of Hans Wegner's early fascination with bent plywood. The range features two ‘shells’ of plywood that are used to create a lean curving back and an effortless cantilevered the seat.
Although considered experimental pieces for Hans Wegner, they cary a minimalist poetic touch and a consideration for the human form,
two signature aspects of Wegner's work.
