pp129 Web Chair

Design — Hans J. Wegner, 1968

Wegner’s primary material was always solid wood. Nevertheless, having designed the pp550 Peacock Chair in 1947, it was not until 1968 that Wegner created an expressive easy chair with solid wood as the dominant material, namely the Web Chair.

Showing a unique style that appears old-school, it nevertheless combines many of the most modern features available; the fabric padding for the seat and head, the flag halyard for the back and the oversized wooden shapes that gives it a larger-than-life feel.

The details are all well thought out and the end result is a majestic chair that will be the centre point of any room in which it finds itself.

Its playful and ample armrests immediately bring to mind Wegner’s sense of joy at shaping solid wood. At the same time the chair manifests the distinct idea of transparency in a nonetheless sturdily constructed, comfortable easy chair.
