pp505 Cow Horn Chair

Hans J. Wegner, 1952


Great luxury sometimes comes in small packages. The pp505 Cow Horn Chair is one of Wegner's smallest chairs, but it is nevertheless an amazing work of art. Wanting to pay homage to the breathtaking beauty of solid wood manually carved into organic shapes, Wegner decided to make a compact chair. Like many of his designs, the pp505 is brought to life through its details, such as the rosewood joints which contrast with the chair's lighter wood frame. This original idea would later become a characteristic trademark in many of his works, and is an important example of his honest and craftsman-like approach to design.
