The version of PP68 Chair, inspired by Hans J. Wegner, is yet another example of the possibilities of wooden furniture. Consisting of a solid, sturdy base and a tactile shaped backrest, with a soft, forgiving woven seat, it bears all of Wegner's trademark simplicity and understated style. Blending both comfort and form perfectly to create a seat that is ideal for both dining and living room lounging, along with working at meeting rooms or in the study, it is one of the countless reasons why we will always adore Hans J. Wegner.
THE STORY BEHIND THE PP68 CHAIR
Like many of his almost 500 chair designs, Hans J. Wegner based his later designs, which included the PP68 entirely on the idea of simplicity. Indeed, he said of the original design that: "It is nothing more than what it us: a chair." Released in 1987, it was an example of the enduring style and appeal of Wegner's work, which had been in production for more than foru decades. And almost 30 years later, it remains as timeless.
