Set of Six 'PP62' Armchairs by Hans J. Wegner

About

Hans J. Wegner for PP Møbler, set of 6 'PP62' dining chairs, oak, cane and wenge, Denmark, 1975. A set of Classically geometric 'PP62' chairs, designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1975. This model was ordered by DFDS Seaways for the ferries to England. The chair features a sculptural backrest with an outward-curving top rail, and flows over into the armrests. It's inlayed with Wenge, which reinforces the symmetry in this model. The seat is executed in woven rope and matches very well with the robust frame. The legs on this clssic chair are completely vertical and straight. There is a notably greater distance between the front legs than between the back ones, which results visually that the sitter is placed in the line of perspective, and the chair appears light. The wood has aged beautifully, showing an admirable patina. The woven seats are in good condition. Hans Wegner (1914-2007) is one of the most prolific furniture designers of the world. Wegner's furniture was designed with the greatest understanding of materials, construction techniques, and use. Wegner is known to be an excellent cabinet maker with thorough understanding of the materials he worked with, yet his greatest aim was to create expressive and exciting design. Although Wegner was a functionalist, he was not a rational dogmatist such as Kaare Klint, of whom he was a student. Instead, his designs sparkle with inventiveness and sculptural sense. But this never meant that his organic and sensuous forms left the strict rules of functionalism. At heart, Wegner was an idealist. He was relentless in his quest for the best chair: 'there is never one damn thing that cannot be made better'. But Wegner was aware of the fact that you cannot design the 'perfect' chair, which gave him the freedom to produce as much as possible. He left behind more than 3500 drawings and about 500 of his designs went into production. His designs feature in the UN Building and Seagram Building in New York, UNESCO's headquarters. NATO's headquarters in Paris, and several buildings by the architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.
