Concept

This chair was designed by Hans J. Wegner for PP Møbler in 1975. The chair had been ordered for the DFDS ferries and were the biggest total order ever received by PP Møbler.

PP 52 is a versatile chair with many interesting solutions. The back draws attention due to its organic idiom, creating an interesting geometrical structure. As always with Wegner, the point of departure is pragmatic. He thus combines solid and laminated wood into the top rail.

The individual items are joined elegantly via vengè, making the chair an elegant and cast solid piece of furniture. The large quantity of pp 52 chairs are still to be found on the ferries now sailing between Copenhagen and Poland.
