Hans Wegner, designer of gloriously beautiful chairs, passed away yesterday at the age of 92.

"A chair is to have no backside. It should be beautiful from all sides and angles."

"Many foreigners have asked me how we made the Danish style. And I've answered that it...was rather a continuous process of purification, and for me of simplification, to cut down to the simplest possible elements of four legs, a seat and combined top rail and arm rest."
