PP550 Peacock Chair

Hans J. Wegner, 1947

OVERVIEW

Despite the Peacock Chair's almost postmodern design, it was actually designed back in 1947. However, its deliberately modern lines are not merely a question of looks. Rather, the sweeping back with its extravagantly shaped sticks is the mark of ergonomic aesthetics. The stick's flat part, which gives the chair its peacock-like appearance, is located exactly where the shoulder blades rest against the chair's back. As were the case with many of his early works, Wegner referenced classic designs but updated his sources of inspiration to create a more modern version, while adding sophisticated details that required the greatest accuracy from highly skilled craftsmen.
