Concept

PP Møbler has brought back the extraordinary pp571 Architect´s Desk designed in 1953 by Wegner as a match to the Round Chair (The Chair). Later in 1955 he designed the Swivel Chair hence completing a line of exclusive, functional and exquisitely crafted masterpieces for the CEO office.

The desk marks the beginning of Wegner's work on combining the sharp steel and the sculptural solid wood in the most elegant and well-balanced solutions. In this respect the desk precedes such unique classics as the Swivel Chair, the Cross Legged Table and the pp75 table.

Also the desk clearly extents the ideas behind Wegner's breakthrough design the Round Chair. The scarce, organic and always reasonable yet luxurious lines became the language of shape that clearly distinguish Wegner as one of the greatest designers of all times.
