Product description

PP Møbler resumed the production of this elegant design icon in 1993. 'The Round One' as Wegner referred to it with his usual provincial modesty, is perhaps the most famous Danish piece of furniture of them all - which says a bit.
Already a ye

ar after the production of this chair startet at Johannes Hansen Møbelsnedkeri A/S, it was noticed by the American magazine for design and architecture, 'Interiors'. This turned out to be the beginning of Danish design's great international breakth

rough. Yet, Wegner remained rather unimpressed with his own creation 'They could have made this hundreds of years ago - nothing new here' he uttered at several occasions, referring to the basically very traditional construction.
PP 503 was designed i

n 1950 and differs from PP 501 by its upholstered seat. PP Møbler's contribution to The Chair has been to improve it in several respects, securing an even longer life of The Chair.
