Hans J. Wegner for Andreas Tuck, table model AT-303, in teak, oak and metal, Denmark, 1955.

Dining table with elegant X-shaped legs, by Danish Designer Hans Wegner. This table is considered as one of the best known designs from Wegner. From a distance, this table, like the most of his designed chairs, presents a strong graphic outline with a wonderful combination of materials as teak wood with brass. This design takes its cue from seventeenth-century Spanish tables that also had elegant legs and brass struts. A solid, elegant and iconic design by Hans Wegner. This particular piece is inlayed with grey plywood, which shows traces of age and use.

Hans Wegner (1914-2007) is one of the most profilic furniture designers of the world. Wegner's furniture was designed with the greatest understanding of materials, construction techniques, and use. Wegner is known to be an excellent cabinet maker with thorough understanding of the materials he worked with, yet his greatest aim was to create expressive and exciting design. Although Wegner was a functionalist, he was not a rational dogmatist such as Kaare Klint, of whom he was a student. Instead, his designs sparkle with inventiveness and sculptural sense. But this never meant that his organic and sensuous forms left the strict rules of functionalism. At heart, Wegner was an idealist. He was relentless in his quest for the best chair: 'there is never one damn thing that cannot be made better'. But Wegner was aware of the fact that you cannot design the 'perfect' chair, which gave him the freedom to produce as much as possible. He left behind more than 3500 drawings and about 500 of his designs went into production. His designs feature in the UN Building and Seagram Building in New York, UNESCO's headquarters. NATO's headquarters in Paris, and several buildings by the architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.
