pp550 Peacock Chair

Design — Hans J. Wegner, 1947

The Peacock Chair is historically anchored in the classic British Windsor Chair. As were the case with many of his early works, Wegner updated his sources of inspiration to a modern version while adding sophisticated details that required the greatest accuracy from highly skilled craftsmen.

 

The sweeping back of the Peacock Chair is characterized by fourteen sticks linking the seat and the arch. The flat middle parts of the sticks, which give the chair its peacock-like appearance, are located exactly where one’s shoulder blades rest against the chair’s back and provide back support.

Despite the Peacock Chair’s almost postmodern design, it was designed back in 1947. The deliberately modern lines are not just a product of a refined sense of aesthetics but provide a tangible seating experience.

a remark from a colleague

When Finn Juhl first saw this chair, he immediately noticed its characteristic back and named it the Peacock Chair.
