PP66 Chinese Chair

Hans J. Wegner, 1945


Inspired by an old Chinese chair that he had carefully studied at the Danish Museum of Industrial Arts, The Chinese Chair became a cornerstone for iconic designer Hans J. Wegner in his early line of designs inspired by foreign cultures. The chair has a high and comfortable back, and full length low armrests which fit well underneath a table top.The center board is moulded with a bend high enough to offer proper support for the lower back. Completing at least seven individual prototypes of Chinese inspired chairs, Wegner worked intensely on modernizing the original concept, resulting in a chair that exudes both traditional and contemporary elegance.
