Venus bench 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.
The Venus Bench features a seat and back in walnut which are cut loose from the frame, creating a light and elegant expression. The subtle inclination of the seat, which can be padded and upholstered with leather or fabric, to provides more comfort.
On all models, the frame is made of solid oak, while the seat, back are made of plywood-walnut bent in two dimensions.
Hans J. Wegner choose the plywood beacuse first, it was the only technique possible to create a such shape and secondly, it provides an higher breaking strength.
