Wegner PP512 Folding Chair
Hans Wegner for PP Møbler
Presented along with The Chair at the legendary 1949 Cabinetmakers' Guild's Autumn Exhibition, the Folding Chair is so elegantly solved that only Wegner could have designed it. Although its shape obviously pays homage to the Barcelona Chair by the renowned Bauhaus architect Mies van der Rohe, the Folding Chair nonetheless reveals the unique skill so characteristic of Wegner himself.
This modern and minimalistic construction exhibits the superb handling of two basic natural materials: solid wood and cane. The wooden handles serve as hand-rests, but they also intersect with the otherwise continuing cane seat causing an aesthetic deviation, which makes the cane work look well balanced rather than overdone.
The Folding Chair appears quite straightforward and elegant in use and thus offers a tangible experience of quality materials. However, when hanging neatly folded on the wall it becomes a piece of art.
NOTE: This item is made to order by some of the world's best furniture craftsmen using materials that are required to meet PP Mobler's exacting specifications. As such, lead times can vary and are subject to change.
