Hans J. Wegner for PP Møbler, extendable dining table ‘PP70’, oak, Denmark, 1975
This extendable dining table designed by Hans J. Wegner is executed in oak. The round tabletop has two additional leaves in order to expand the table from 126 cm to 230 cm. Four cylindrical legs lift the top up gracefully. With its minimal appearance and focus on forms and function this table is a great example of Scandinavian Modern design.
Hans Wegner (1914-2007) is one of the most famous 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 cabinetmaker with thorough understanding of the materials he worked with. 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 a 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 are featured in the UN Building and Seagram Building in New York, UNESCO's headquarters, the NATO's headquarters in Paris and several buildings by the architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.
