Peacock Chair at 1stdibs

Not cheap, but a nice Wegner chair in ash manufactured in 1947 according to the dealer.

The number of the Peacock Chair is PP550 which indicates it is a product of PP Møbler.

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.

Tivoli Chair by Fredrik Mattson

The Tivoli chair can be experienced at the SE-exhibition until November 11th 2007 in Copenhagen and in January 2008 in Silkeborg. The Chair is the result of a collaborating experiment between PP Mobler and Swedish designer Frederik Mattson. The chair is made of ash wood, one of PP Mobler’s preferred materials. For the production itself they have used compressed wood, taking it to the extreme here by shaping four glued pieces of compressed wood that with the use of form-bending are able to rotate as a closed curve around a fixed axis. The shape of the curve is thus fixated, while the size grows bigger and bigger in a geometrical progression, thus the spiral shape makes up the chair’s seat, back, and sides. The shaping of the chair demands precision craftsmanship and specific treatment of the material. From the foot of the chair, made of red painted ash wood, there are six steel wires that at the end each have a glove shaped holder that both provides a strong grip and stabilizes the flexible spiral.

Circle Chair by Hans Wegner

The Circle Chair is a laminated ring with stretched, wide-meshed net. One of the experiments that proved to be an international success. The Circle Chair was Wegner and PP Mobler’s contribution to the SE Exhibition in 1986.
And, as usual, the prototype was not completed before the very last moment – the morning of the show to be exact. Consequently, the chair was rushed of to the show by master of crafts Ejnar Pedersen in his car – which happened to break down on the way. The chair has a really interesting design, and I see it as an exceptional piece of outdoor furniture.
