PP 503 The Chair by Hans Wegner for PP Mobler.

"The Round One", as Wegner referred to it, is one of his most famous Danish pieces of furniture. In a modest and simple way it sums up the very essence of Danish wood working and design philosophy. It is deemed the most important work of Hans J Wegner. 

When John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon met in the first ever televised election debate in 1960, they sat in The Round Chair. It was chosen mainly for its comfort and genuine quality - made in Denmark and shipped to the USA to play an important role in this historic event. Eventually the Americans came up with a new and more telling name for this chair. They called it 'The Chair'.

Armchair with upholstered leather seat and available in oak, ash and cherry in the following finishes: soaptreated, clear bio oil, white bio oil and lacquered. Upholstered in fabrics of the collection or standard leather. Please see downloadable Fabrics and leathers pdf for information on available upholstery.

It is also available with a cane seat, please see "more products in the range" below.
