The Chinese Chair is one of Hans Wegner’s earliest designs in production yet it is produced using the most modern bending technique. A single piece of steamed solid wood is compressed along its length using an advanced technical process and is immediately rounded before it is bent in three dimensions.

Bending a round piece of wood would appear to be simple, but because of the complexity of the bend, it requires advanced tools, specialised knowledge and experience to control the operation.

PP66 comes with paper cord woven seat in natural or black colours.

PP56 has an upholstered seat.
