About

Stunning Scandinavian mid-century modern easy chair designed by the Danish legend Hans Wegner in 1949, and put in production in 1986 by PP Mobler. The made to order hoop lounge chair features a net of pleated flag line with steel clips, an ash wood frame and removable seat and headrest cushions upholstered in the original fabric. Although the lounge chair is light, it also has casters on the back legs to facilitate moving it around. Bears original label. Casters are marked "Scancastor Pat. App. Made in Denmark."

To Wegner, the circle was the most simple and elegant of all shapes, and he didn't complete the design of the Circle Chair until he was 72 years old. In fact, the design of this chair has an incredible story behind it, as described in the manufacturer's words: "One of the experiments that proved to be an international success. It was necessary for master of crafts Soren Holst Pedersen and master journeyman Henry Fisker to develop a special machine for manufacturing it in wood - which Wegner himself actually did not think was even possible. The Circle Chair was Wegner and PP Mobler's contribution to the SE Exhibition in 1986. And, as usual, the prototype was not completed before the very last moment - the morning of the show to be exact. Consequently, the chair was rushed of to the show by master of crafts Ejnar Pedersen in his car - which happened to break down on the way. But in a stunning display of resourcefulness, Ejnar managed to persuade a bypassing truck driver to take the chair to the show. Fortunately, the unknown man kept his promise and, thus, all ended well. But he could of course simply have chosen to leave with the chair."
