Hans J. Wegner is undoubtedly most famous for his many chairs. But he also designed a gamut of tables and with the same degree of accuracy. To Wegner, the most important part of this type of furniture was not the table top, but rather what was underneath. For the supporting structure of the tables, he was as usual inspired by furniture designs of the past. Cross legs have a long tradition in the history of furniture; they are, for example, known from 17th century Spanish tables. Wegner used these cross legs for the almost graceful Sabre Leg Table from 1955, which was later reproduced in numerous forms. Wegner was focused on ensuring the stability of the pieces that he designed, and in this case he used brass stretchers to provide support - but as always in a way that made the result appear effortless and beautiful.
