One hot summer afternoon in 1950, Hans J Wegner was watching his children play near the ocean, but his designing mind didn’t pause for a beach day. He dug a hole in the sand, experimenting with sitting positions and finally creating a comfortable perch: one that allowed him to recline while maintaining an unobstructed view of his surroundings.
It was a new way for a chair to hold someone. Back at his summer cottage, Wegner sketched out the angles from the beach and began to develop the form for the Flag Halyard Chair
The PP225 Flag Halyard Chair is a very comfortable and very chic piece of furniture. The Flag Halyard Chair was designed by Hans J Wegner back in 1950. It looks much more modern than it actually is. It’s always surprising when old designs are brought into our attention and seem so modern and contemporary.
This one-of-a-kind armchair is made of solid stainless steel and it features a 240 meters specially developed flag line and a long-haired sheep skin.
