Product description

When Finn Juhl first saw this chair he immediately noticed its characteristic back and named it The Peacock Chair - a name which stuck with the chair. Despite the chair's almost postmodern design, it was actually manufactured as far back as 1947 at Johann

es Hansen's Møbelsnedkeri A/S. However, its consciously modern lines are not merely a matter of looks. Rather, the sweeping back with its extravagantly shaped sticks are a feat of ergonomic aesthetics. The flat part of the sticks, which gives it it

s peacock-like appearance, are placed where the shoulder-blades meet the chair's back. Also, and not unusual with Wegner, the chair also has a historical anchorage, namely in the classic Windsor Chair. As in other cases Wegner has updated his idol in a mo

dern version. PP Møbler resumed production of the chair in 1992.
