The Venus chair features a base with struts in solid oak and a table top in solid walnut. The rectangular tabletop has fine pagoda shape edges. The junction of these two wood varieties creates a contrast highlighted by different cabinet making techniques that add a light and elegant expression.
Beautiful Venus series, including this small table, illustrates 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.
In 1948, MoMa launched inexpensive furniture design competition. Hans J. Wegner sent the Venus sketches. It was that well received by international press that Fritz Hansen produced the collection until 1950, when it disappeared from the market.
Last year, the furniture factory Getama succeeded in acquiring the rights to the furniture series, and after having developed the necessary tools, Getama could present the furniture in 2015.
The furniture range also includes the GE1935 bench and the GE1936 chair.
