pp58/pp68, 1987

What is left to do after a long glorious carrier with a long line of design masterpieces acknowledged by the whole world, and a number of significant awards already achieved?

For Hans J. Wegner the answer was obvious: in 1987, 73 years old, he designed the pp58/pp68 as his final basic chair; a genuinely comfortable, practical, strong, durable and affordable chair. Benefitting from a life's experience with furniture design, he was determined to let this particular design be guided by all he had learnt from his previous works.

Comprising solid wood joined with tenons proved by testing each joint to withstand one ton of pulling strength, the chair is designed to be comfortable in alternate seating positions, making it a delightful experience to be seated for hours. At an affordable price, it will outlast everyday use throughout your life - and your children's and your grandchildren's, effectively constituting the essence of sustainability – and not just in terms of ecology, but also in terms of economics.

All in all it is a strong, final contribution from one of the world’s greatest furniture designers. The simple conclusion to an incredible life’s work.

____________


pp58|pp68 is optimized to be practical. The short armrests makes it easy to enter and move around the chair. It fits well underneath the table, and it can also hang from the table top to make cleaning easier. The all solid wood tenon joints have been tested to withstand one ton of pulling strength.

pp58 comes with an upholstered seat.
pp68 has a plaited seat available in either natural colour or black.
