PP512 folding chair

By PP Møbler


  • Description

    Wegner's ambition was to create an armchair, which could be stowed away easily. He solved this by drawing a chair which can be hung on the wall. Wegner drew his solution with his usual assurance, and has brought all parts into perfect interplay. The PP512 is an unfailing mobile solution, providing for a place for the hands and that the chairs also looks good when folded.

    The chair was designed in 1949 by Hans J. Wegner for Johannes Hansen Møbelsnedkeri. PP Møbler resumed production in 1991.
