I have bought both the blue cashmere egg chair and the swan chair (same color) for our daughters new flat. The design is awesome, you have to arrange delivery yourself as they aren't allow to ship outside Ireland. Sounds as a pain but its super easy and cost 60€ for delivery to Frederiksberg with DSV, took two days.

Great Service, they keep their promise

The quality is amazing, it was ready after 6 weeks (not 6 months!). Really happy with the chair.

Helpfull staff!

I was unsecure about choosing Italian leather or go for the Danish cashmere, but got help on their live chat, they really know about their details. 122 Design is truly a heaven if you love cheap high quality stylish furnitures for your home.

Really Good Quality

I ordered my Egg Chair with Black Italian leather last month and have now received it. I'm really please with the seams and the attention to the details. The service was good, there was a nice catalog with the package and how best practice after care. Worth to sign up for their newsletters, they send out good inspiration emails.

Great service!

Had to change the colour after, and that was super easy. I spoke to David on the LiveChat and they quickly changed it. Really good aftercare, appreciate it was easy to get in touch with them and they solved my issue quickly, even on a Sunday. Now I have 4 lovely white chairs in my living room, they look beautiful and just in time for Christmas!

Really good quality, friendly livechat!

Always wanted the y chair for our new kitchen. Great quality (this was actually why I bought from 122 Design) and good support after my order. Smart with the livechat, I used that before I finally made up my mind. I think a lot of online furniture store could learn something from 122 Design!

Virkelig flot!

People who pay the original price, must feel stupid. There is no difference, and the quality is really amazing at 122 Design

High quality

Eleanor on Jun 09, 2016

But pleasantly purprised with the quality and it looks really nice in our house. I had to arrange my own delivery, it might sounds complicated and expensive but its not. When the product is about to be ready, they contact you. It took me 5 min and cost 39 euro for a lounge chair.

I just want to make everyone aware, that the detailed quality of this lamp is just amazing. There is no difference in this one or what you can buy in e.g. Louis Poulsen, except you are saving a LOT of money. Ohh well, 122 Design is also open in the weekends. 6 weeks from ordered to ready!

My favorite chair. Bought two with my husband for their hunting house. We went for Walnut (a bit more expensive) but really nice quality.

Flot kvalitet

Deborah on Feb 09, 2016

Excellent Service and most importantly: perfect furniture. A bit of wait though.

Just a little tips

Dawn on Jan 09, 2016

I have ordered different designs inspired by the designer Eames and I gotta say there are all individually great, there is a nice finish to each of the designs and it is really easy to assemble. I thought first that all of them would be delivered assembled but the DSW and DAW comes in two part the feet and seat separate, but to be honest there is nothing as simple as those to build. Regarding the service, not a lot of follow up on order maybe this is something 122 Design could improve but apart from that I am just happy!

Hans Wegner was born on April 2nd, 1914 in Tønder, Denmark. At a young age, he started working as an apprentice to master cabinetmaker H. F. Stahlberg where he soon discovered he had a feeling for wood, and developed an affinity towards the material which marked his entire career. Finishing his apprenticeship at 17 he remained in the workshop for another three years before joining the army. Afterwards, he went to technical college and then to Danish School of Art and Crafts in Copenhagen.

After finishing his studies in 1940, Wegner started working at Erik Møller and Arne Jacobsen’s design studio where one his first assignments was designing the furniture for the new town hall in Aarhus.

During the war, Wegner worked with Børge Mogensen at FDB Furniture, where he helped create FDB’s low-cost quality furniture which was an important part of the functionalistic ideology behind the Danish Modern. Along with other big names in Danish design, Hans Wegner’s work is often credited for changing the general public’s view of furniture in the 1950s and 1960s.


Master of the Chair

Unlike most of the other designers at the time, Hans Wegner wasn’t interested in architecture. Instead, he devoted his entire career to furniture design and especially chairs. During his career, Hans J. Wegner designed over 500 chairs and a large number of different furniture elements, earning himself the title “The Master of the Chair”.

When talking about Wegner’s immense success in this field, one must mention that, despite his modern, minimalistic and innovative approach to design, he always held a deep respect for nature and, unlike many of his contemporaries, Wegner kept wood at the heart of all of his most successful designs.

Some of his most popular chair designs include:

In 1941 Hans J. Wegner began a long and productive collaboration with the joiner master, Johannes Hansen. The two worked together on some of Wegner’s most famous furniture, including The Chair, Peacock Chair (Butterfly) and the Chinese Dining Table.

After Johannes Hansen passed away in 1995, the production of several models has been taken over by PP Møbler. Another company closely related to Wegner’s work certainly is Fritz Hansen, where some of his most iconic designs are still being produced today.

Wegner's own Design Studio

After working for a couple of years at Arne Jacobsen’s studio, Hans J. Wegner decided to open his own design studio in 1943. It was here that he began designing chairs which were inspired by the Chinese Ming era and which later became his most famous and successful series. During the post-war period, Wegner also used his studio to produce furniture together with Børge Mogensen and others designers involved in the FDB projects.

The time Wegner worked at his own studio spanned for many years and is considered one of one of the most productive periods of his career as he produced hundreds of new prototypes. He seldom left work and, as his contemporaries later told, he was extremely dedicated to his work and had little other interests.

Wegner's International Career

Hans J Wegner’s immense success in Denmark and increasing popularity of his designs quickly lead to a wider recognition on the international market. During the 1950s, Wegner’s furniture appeared on many American exhibitions and the ensuing publicity lead to the greater demand for Danish designer furniture overseas.

Wegner also received a number of international awards, including Lunningspirisen in 1951 and 8th International Design Award in 1971 in Osaka, Japan, and his designs were displayed at a number of world-renowned design museums, including The Museum of Modern Art in New York, Die Neue Sammlung in Munchen and Centre Pompidou in Paris.

In 1997, Hans Wegner received an honorary doctorate at Royal College of Art in London.

The Last Years of Wegner's Career

Wegner retired in 1993 and his daughter Marianne, a qualified architect, took over her father’s design studio after working with him for 20 years.

Wegner passed away on January 7th, 2007, at the age of 92. However, his designs are still being produced today and are extremely sought after worldwide, while the legacy of his work continues to live on. His enormous contribution to the international recognition and popularity of the Danish Modern, as well as his unique style and flair for innovation, earned the “Master of the Chair” a place among the biggest names of Danish design.

However, maybe the most important legacy of Wegner’s work is his devotion to wood, through which he showed that modern design isn’t an obstacle to using traditional materials. As Paola Antonelli, head of the department of architecture and design at Museum of Modern Art in New York, said, Wegner was one of the most earthbound designers of his time, but he will rather be remembered as a carpenter than as a designer.
