Concept

The table was designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1982 for PP Møbler. PP 75 is an exiting table from Wegner's hand. Especially noticeable is the frame, where we see Wegner's preoccupation with triangles.

The triangle is a simple and very strong construction principle, often used in larger constructions such as bridges, but with this design Wegner has made a quantum leap downwards in scale. The centrally placed legs constitute a pyramid in the shape of four triangles, and these triangles are repeated in the steel bars keeping the legs in place. Consequently, the circular, solid tabletop seems to balance itself on top of the pyramid.

In PP 75, construction principles, common sense, and strong symbolical symbols thus enter together in an almost metaphysical unity.

The table is available in soaptreated or lacquered ash or oak wood.
