pp226 Chinese Bench
Feeling so confident about the strength and agility of the pp66 Chinese Chair, Wegner allowed himself to prolong the construction into a bench thus creating an even stronger character. Being the first and only example of Wegner making use of this bold design move in a wooden armchair, The Chinese Bench is a unique and extraordinary icon in the legacy of Wegner.
The Chinese Bench only existed as a prototype until 1991, where it finally became possible to produce thanks to the pioneering experiments at PP Møbler with the pre-compression wood bending technique.
Still the Chinese Bench poses a great challenge to the most skilled craftsmen not only in the woodwork, but also in the prolonged papercord seat that demands an unusual degree of accuracy in order to appear linear.ça m'intéresse
