PP129

After all the attention his Hammock Chair (GE135) received in 1967, Wegner wanted to use the attractive hammock-weave pattern again, and the following year in he designed chair, JH719, for Johannes Hansen.

It was originally planned (and shown the first time) in red-painted beech with a distinctive back using the same tecnique in woven halyard. The chair evolved into a sturdy lounge chair consisting of large sections of solid timber that contrast with the almost

spider-web-light flag halyard back.

It is currently produced by PP Møbler as their model PP129, called the Web Chair.

This lounge chair formed the basis of Wegner’s final rocking chair, PP124, also called the Flag Halyard Rocking Chair, which he designed for PP Møbler in 1984. With different armrests and re-shaped legs set on runners, the chair’s expression was not as robust as JH719. However. It retains its’ V-form fanning upwards from the floor, a loose neck cushion, and not least of all the characteristic woven seat and back, made from approximately 80 metres of flag halyard.
