Wegner PP58/3 Chair
Hans Wegner for PP Møbler
Originally this chair was designed by Hans J. Wegner for the DSB (Danish Rail) ferries, however DSB ended up choosing another of Wegner's chairs, PP 208. Subsequently he continued working on the design, and in 1987 PP Møbler started the actual production of the PP58 Chair. With The PP58 Chair, Wegner created comfortable dining chairs suitable for long, cosy evenings around the dining table. As opposed to many of Wegner's more elaborate models, the short armrests have been designed enabling them to, partially, fit under the table, and it can also hang from the table top to make cleaning easier. Each solid wood tenon joint has been tested to withstand one ton of pulling strength.
The three-legged version of pp58 is named pp58/3. More simple in shape and stackable, but yet with the same basic characteristics as its predecessor: Excellent comfort, practical and with a strength and durability to outlast daily use for generations.
Even though the chair only has three legs, it is remarkably stable, and the triangular rail structure under the seat allows the simplest possible construction of the chair. This makes pp58/3 a beautiful and elegant chair for the dining table, and like pp58 it is the result of Wegner's experience from a long life as one of the world's greatest furniture designers.
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.
