Cobe to design Museum Wegner 01

Cobe selected to design the future Museum Wegner

Cobe has been chosen as the architect for the future Museum Wegner. The museum will be located at the historic ‘Hestholm’ farm - approximately one kilometer from the city center of Tønder - a historical town in Southern Denmark at the border to Germany, where Hans J. Wegner was born and where he served his apprenticeship as a carpenter.

"We are humbled and honoured to have the opportunity to pay tribute to Hans J. Wegner - one of the great masters of Danish design. The new museum will be located at ‘Hestholm’ - one of the historic marsh farms in the Tønder area. In a mix of transformation of the existing farm and new extensions, the museum will provide the physical setting for Wegner's design universe in a way that respects the nature and cultural heritage of the local area, while also incorporating the international appeal that defines Wegner's furniture" - Cobe founder and architect, Dan Stubbergaard.
