THE DECK CHAIR, 1958
The Deck Chair is serving exactly the purpose that the name implies and stands as an obvious archetype. Nevertheless, it refers to a number of earlier Wegner designs and is basically derived from the pp512 Folding Chair and the beautiful but rare Dolphin Chairs, adding an adjustment mechanism for the back very similar to the one on the pp530 Tub Chair.
Despite the number of references, the Deck Chair seems to be concluded with simple means. It is an elegant and agile recliner, and although it is not made for permanent outdoor use, the flag line and the light construction will encourage one to bring it out to enjoy a sunny afternoon under the blue sky.
pp524 is contrary to its predecessors, has no armrests. The fittings and a stainless steel loop with a girdle for safety, allows the chair four different positions. The chair comes with a neck cushion. A sheep-skin can be delivered separately.
