PP550 peacock chair

By PP Møbler


  • Description

    When Finn Juhl first saw this chair he immediately noticed its characteristic back and named it The Peacock Chair - a name which stuck with the chair.

    Despite the chair's almost postmodern design, it was actually manufactured as far back as 1947.

    However, its consciously modern lines are not merely a matter of looks. Rather, the sweeping back with its extravagantly shaped sticks are a feat of ergonomic aesthetics. The flat part of the sticks, which gives it its peacock-like appearance, are placed where the shoulder-blades meet the chair's back.

    Also, and not unusual with Wegner, the chair also has a historical anchorage, namely in the classic Windsor Chair. As in other cases Wegner has updated his idol in a modern version. PP Møbler resumed production of the chair in 1992.
