But as early as 1953, PP Møbler became the sub-supplier of the frames for the Teddy Bear Chair. And even though PP Møbler did not get its own Wegner designs until 1969, the actual cooperation began here. This cooperative effort was followed by development work on many of Wegner's prototypes.
Like many other Wegner chairs, The Teddy Bear Chair seems to refer to the animal kingdom with its characteristically playful and organic design. The chair received its name after a critic had referred to its armrests as 'great bear paws embracing you from behind'. In the later years, The Teddy Bear Chair has been one of the most popular Wegner designs of all. Wegner also drew a foot-rest for The Teddy Bear Chair, PP 120.
