The elegantly resolved use of leather and fabric in combination in the design of the Upholstered Peacock Chair demonstrates Wegner’s extrordinary skill in balancing two contradicting materials.
As the name implies pp521 is an upholstered interpretation of the pp550, Wegner’s iconicPeacock Chair from 1947. In the Upholstered Peacock Wegner has repeated the arch from the
original version and then covered the construction with fabric making a softer chair. The neck and the armrests allow the seated to indulge in the sensible touch of leather, right where it matters the most.
PP521 is upholstered using only natural materials like flax fibres, cotton, jute straps, palm leaves and horsehair. This is the only way to ensure that this kind of easy chair will be wornin rather than worn out with time.
