One chair wasn’t enough for him
by Thomas Wagner | 9/19/2014
At the end of the 60ies, Wegner designed two prototypes, which were further developed by PP Møbler. Wegner offered the workshop to produce the prototypes if they were interested. Nevertheless, Master of Crafts Ejnar Pedersen was most fond of one of
the chairs due to its back and legs. Consequently, this chair, PP 203 went into production in 1969 while the other chair went to Getama. PP 203 was the first full step in the long cooperation between PP Møbler and Wegner.
The design points in
several directions. The under-frame is almost identical with that of Wegner's so-called 'Chinese Chairs' while the minimal back points to 'The Chair' and other characteristic Wegner designs.
