Hans Wegner’s Circle Chair pp130 by PP MØBLER
For me PP MØBLER has a website as it should be. Easy navigation and easy access to press material. Very nice photo work.
The story of PP Møbler starts in 1953. Two brothers, Ejnar and Lars Peder Pedersen, only recently graduated as carpenters, wish to set up a workshop of their own. They buy a small plot of land in Allerød and quickly gather eight young and talented cabinet makers.
The rest is history. Today, PP Møbler is one of the few remaining cabinet making workshops in Denmark. With a production covering the Japanese and the American market with furniture from Hans J. Wegner among others, the workshop is now an internationally recognised company with a strong tradition for crafting design furniture of high quality. Motivation has always been the love of wood and a stubborn belief that technique, ingenuity and craftsmanship can be combined in the strive for quality.
The craftsmen at PP Møbler are innovative and thorough working, encouraged to explore and develop skills in the constant search for a better way, a more precise way, of refining the production process, never compromising respect for the material.
The vast majority of PP Møbler’s wood supply comes from the beautiful sustainable forests of Denmark and Germany. The joy of working with wood as an organic whole makes environmental considerations a natural part of PP Møblers work ethics.
The sole purpose of PP Møbler is to create beautiful and functional furniture that can withstand daily use for generations.

PP has had a long working relationship with Hans Wegner. Frequently he let them develop prototypes and preproduction models of chairs he designed. Originally Hans Wegner wanted the Circle Chair be made in steel. It was PP Møbler who convinced him to do it in wood. They even constructed a special machine to create the exacting round form.
In the Circle Chair Video Hans Wegner inspects the creation of a circle chair himself.
