Hans J. Wegner, deck chair 'PP524', oak, rope, stainless steel, Denmark, 1958

Beautiful Hans J. Wegner Deck Chair, also known as the 'PP 524' chair. The chair was first shown at the Copenhagen Cabinet-Makers Guild Exhibition in 1958 and produced by Johannes Hansen. Unlike many other lounge chairs, this model does not have armrests, which adds to the overall sleek look of the chair. Moreover, the chair is a folding chair, which gives it not only an interesting mechanism but makes it very practical. The fittings of the chair and the stainless steel loop, allow for the chair to be adjusted to four different positions. Overall, the Deck Chair is perfect for what the name already implies.

Hans Wegner (1914-2007) is one of the most famous furniture designers of the world. Wegner's furniture was designed with the greatest understanding of materials, construction techniques, and use. Wegner is known to be an excellent cabinet maker with thorough understanding of the materials he worked with, yet his greatest aim was to create expressive and exciting design. Although Wegner was a functionalist, he was not a rational dogmatist such as Kaare Klint, of whom he was a student. Instead, his designs sparkle with inventiveness and sculptural sense. But this never meant that his organic and sensuous forms left the strict rules of functionalism. At heart, Wegner was an idealist. He was relentless in his quest for the best chair: 'there is never one damn thing that cannot be made better'. But Wegner was aware of the fact that you cannot design the 'perfect' chair, which gave him the freedom to produce as much as possible. He left behind more than 3500 drawings and about 500 of his designs went into production. His designs feature in the UN Building and Seagram Building in New York, UNESCO's headquarters. NATO's headquarters in Paris, and several buildings by the architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.
