Refined Queen

Innovative and organic

Hans J. Wegner’s work was characterized by an innovative and organic approach to the art of designing. Queen was designed by Wegner in the late 1960s and is, to this day, still one of his most elegant armchairs.




An exquisite understanding for materials

The slim and intact lines in the back of the stool demonstrates Wegner’s exquisite understanding for materials and talent for designing.




An aesthetic contrasting interplay

The chair’s mode of expression is a feminine reflection of his popular Ox chair, and the two dissimilar easy chairs complement each other in a beautiful aesthetic juxtaposition.

A true beauty

Queen looks beautiful in leather, textile or velvet.

Worth the wait

Wegner drew both the Ox chair and the Queen chair at the same time, but, when the Ox was launched in the 1960s, the public had to wait many years for the Queen – it was launched in 2010.

Son of a shoe-maker in southern Jutland, Hans Wegner, finished his formal training as a cabinetmaker with master cabinetmaker Stahlberg in 1930 before starting at Teknologisk Institut in Copenhagen. He soon moved to the School of Arts and Crafts in the Danish capital where he became architect in 1938, and started teaching in 1946.

In 1940 he joined Arne Jacobsen and Erik Møller in Arhus, to design the furniture for the new Arhus city hall. He started to work with 'minister' cabinetmaker Johannes Hansen in 1940 and showed his first furniture in the famous Hansen store on Bredgade 65 in 1941. Johannes Hansen was more than twice as old as the 26 year old Wegner but the unique collaboration between the two became the undisputed backbone of Danish furniture design and the main reason for it's world wide recognition in the fifties and sixties. The Copenhagen Museum of Art and Industry acquired the first Wegner chair in 1942.

In 1943 he started his own design office and 1 year later designed the first of a long series of 'chinese' chairs inspired by portraits of Danish merchants sitting in Ming chairs for Fritz Hansen. In 1950 Wegner designed the “Wishbone Chair” produced by Carl Hansen & Søn in Odense which became the most successful of all Wegner chairs. Most well known for it’s use by Kennedy and Nixon in their famous CBS TV debate of 1960.
