PP225 Flag Halyard chair

By PP Møbler


  • Description

    With the Flag Halyard chair, Hans Wegner pay a tribute the Modernists like Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe and Marcel Breuer. He proved at the same time he was also a master in the use of steel tubes. Despite this infidelity to wood, his favorite material, the Flag Halyard chair features a wegnerien style. The flat surfaces are made using a long, single halyard flag, 240 meter long, covered with a longhaired sheepskin that comes to soften - and somehow contradict - the coldness of the steel industry.

    The flag line is made of natural linen woven around a core strong enough to avoid stretching over time. A skilled worker makes the weaving in about 14 hours. The PP225 chair is available in natural and black linen.
