PP589 Bar Bench by Hans J. Wegner for PP Møbler in Ash

About

The PP589 bar bench in ash with slats resting on running rails. Each bar bench is made to order and takes between 16-24 weeks to produce. Available in oak or ash with soap or oil finish. Price varies with material and finish selection. From the manufacturer: "Wegner designed the bar bench for his own private entrance hall. Employing simple means, the bench provides practical intermediate seating while appearing like a transparent unit, blending in with the surrounding interior and light. The bar bench is designed in 1953, the same year as the fabulous pp521 Upholstered Peacock chair was designed, and these two beautiful pieces of furniture were often presented together. Obviously the Bar Bench is such a strong design that despite the fact that it was designed for an entrance hall, it will suit many other purposes." - PP Møbler.

About Hans J. Wegner (Designer)

Best known for his chairs and seating pieces — though a master of many furniture types like sofas and tables — Hans Wegner was a prolific designer whose elegant, often ebullient, forms and devotion to the finest methods in joinery made "Danish Modern" a popular byword for stylish, well-made furniture in the mid-20th century.


     Wegner considered himself a carpenter first and a furniture designer second. Like his peers Arne Jacobsen and Finn Juhl, Wegner believed that striking aesthetics in furniture were based on a foundation of practicality: a chair must be comfortable and sturdy before it is chic.


     In keeping with that tenet, several of Wegner’s best chair designs, seen in dealer listings below, have their roots in traditional seating forms. The “Peacock chair” (designed 1947) is a throne-like adaptation of the Windsor chair; pieces from the “China chair” series (begun in 1944) as well as the 1949 “Wishbone chair,” with its distinctive Y-shaped back splat, are derived from 17th-century Ming seating pieces, as is the upholstered “Ox chair” (1960). Wegner’s comfy “Papa Bear chair” (1951) is an almost surreally re-scaled English wingback chair.


     Wegner’s most representative piece, the “Round chair” (1949), gained a footnote in political history when it was used on the TV stage of the first Kennedy-Nixon debate of 1960. That chair, along with Wegner’s more bravura designs, for example the 1963 “Shell chair,” with its curved surfboard-shaped seat, bring a quietly sculptural presence to a room. Wegner was a designer who revered his primary material — wood — and it shows. His wood gathers patina and character with age; every Hans Wegner piece testifies to the life it has led.
