Height of armrests
01 product description
At Kunsthåndværkets Spring Exhibition in 1943, Wegner presented his first version of a chair inspired by an old Chinese chair, which he had seen at the Danish Museum of Industrial Arts. Since then, more versions have appeared.
Originally, PP 66 was designed for Fritz Hansen where it was only in production for a few years. PP Møbler began producing PP 66 in 1976 where the basic element, a 2 meter steam-bent pole, was preserved. In 1991 the chair was made stronger by replacing the steam-bent pole with a pre-compressed one.
The prototype for PP 56 was developed in cooperation with PP Møbler, and went into production in 1989. PP 56 differs from its predecessor, PP 66, by having an attached seat and a different frame.

You can always rely on someone like him – and there are said to be as many as another 3,500 furniture designs in his archive.
One chair wasn’t enough for him
Young designers can still learn a lot from him, even if this year Hans J.
Wegner would have turned 100. On the occasion of his anniversary, Christian
Holmsted Olesen has dedicated an insightful book to the life, work and
approach of the exceptional designer.

As regards design, Denmark certainly has its finger on the pulse of things. Is this anything more than a re-edition of Danish Modernism? Are objects being made sustainably inside Denmark? A trip to “3DaysofDesign” in Copenhagen provides the answers.› To the article
