For a glimpse of the vernissage of the Wegner-Jensen show, please visit YouTube.

Studio Georgeville, in collaboration with Mobilier Design Georgeville, hosted a show of the internationally known Danish modern furniture designer  Hans Wegner (1914-2007) in the spring of 2011.

Hans Wegner was one of Denmark's most original modern furniture designers, and this was the first-ever solo show in Quebec of his work. All pieces were for sale and  represented the broad scope of Wegner's furniture, with both classic and hard-to-find pieces being offered. 

Studio Georgeville also displayed new work by  Niels Jensen, who credits Hans Wegner as one of his early inspirations. Wegner was a friend of Niels's late father, architect Kris Krogh Jensen, and Niels grew up surrounded by Wegner furniture.
