Papa Bear chair by Hans Wegner for PP Mobler.

The Papa Bear chair was the first Hans J Wegner chair to be produced by PP Mobler, and it marks a lifelong collaboration involving countless hours developing prototypes and production techniques for numerous Wegner designs. It remains one of Wegner's most exclusive designs due to the intensive and exacting nature of its construction; over 100 separate production processes are involved, carried out by skilled Danish craftsmen.

The solid wood frame is hand-joined to provide a base for the traditional upholstery. With the exception of the seat cushion, no foam is used in the upholstery; the back and armrests are stuffed with cotton, palm and flax fibre and horse hair. The addition of springs creates a durable and immensely comfortable easy chair which embraces the sitter in a warm hug, as its name suggests.

Available in oak and ash in the following finishes: soaptreated, clear bio oil, white bio oil or lacquered. Also available in cherry and walnut in clear bio oil or clear lacquered finishes.

Upholstered in fabrics of the collection or Standard leather. Please see downloadable Fabrics and leathers pdf for options.

Customer's own fabric available on request. Please enquire for details.

*Please note walnut is in limited production and only available while supplies last. Please contact us before ordering to check availability.
