PP 225 – The Flag Halyard

“PP225 
THE FLAG HALYARD CHAIR, 1950

With a frame made of solid stainless steel, 240 meters specially developed flag line forming the seat and back, and a longhaired sheepskin softening the industrial sharpness of the steel, this chair is the ultimate relaxing luxury!

Although the appearance of the Flag Halyard Chair seams rather futuristic, the basic idea was conceived on a hot summer afternoon under quite trivial conditions. While the kids were playing in the shallow water on the beach, Wegner was digging himself into the sand building a comfortable chair to enjoy the holidays. Back in the summerhouse Wegner made the first sketches using the seating angles that he had conceived on the beach.

Despite having obvious preferences for wood, Wegner shows his bold and courageous apatite for creating. With the Flag Halyard Chair he pays a tribute to the early modernists such as Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, and Marcel Breuer, and proves that he masters stainless steel with the same conclusive elegance as he masters wood.

If you wish to select the sheepskin for your Flag Halyard Chair, you can see all available sheepskin following the bellow link. When you place the order at your dealer simply tell them to pass the number of your selection to the PP office, and we will have that particular sheepskin shipped with your chair.”
