Chinese Chair PP66
The PP66 has a high and comfortable back and full length low armrests that fit well underneath the table top. The centre board is moulded with a bend high enough to offer proper support for the lower back.PP66 comes with paper-cord woven seat in natural or black.The Chinese Chair PP66 was designed in 1945 and became the quintessential modern outcome of Wegner’s studies of Chinese chairs. The PP56 version with the upholstered seat for a softer sitting experience was added in 1989, and also available in our Holloways collection, please see our other listing for details.Wegner presented his first version of The Chinese Chair at the Cabinetmakers’ Guild’s Autumn Exhibition in 1943. He had been inspired by an old Chinese chair from the Ming dynasty that he had carefully studied in a book.The Chinese Chair became a cornerstone for Wegner in his early line of designs inspired by foreign cultures. Completing at least seven individual prototypes of Chinese inspired chairs, Wegner worked intensely on modernising the traditional concept, and eventually The Chinese Chair evolved into the Round One, also called The Chair.
