Brand: PP Mobler

Designer: Hans J. Wegner

The Chinese Chair was designed in 1945 and became the quintessential modern outcome of Wegner’s studies of traditional Chinese chairs from the Ming Dynasty. The Chinese Chair became a cornerstone for Wegner, and the scarce, but still robust and functional geometry constituted the foundations for many later designs.

A single piece of steamed solid wood is compressed along its length using an advanced technical process and is immediately rounded before it is bent in three dimensions. Bending a round piece of wood would appear to be simple, but because of the complexity of the bend, it requires advanced tools, specialised knowledge and experience to control the operation.

We've listed our most popular styles for sale, but there are many other customisation options available. For further information, click here to email us and we'll be in touch within 24 hours.

    • 58cm (w) 79cm (h) 56cm (d) 42cm (sh)
    • Available in oak, ash or cherry in the following finishes: soap treated, clear bio oil, white bio oil or black lacquered. This chair comes in natural or black papercord.

Authentic Nordic design

We exist to bring real and authentic Nordic style into British homes. Our collection of Danish furniture and lighting by world-renowned designers sit alongside an array of lifestyle items and home accessories from younger, emerging brands.

Design icons

Some of our pieces are almost a century old. The Nordic design output of the last hundred years (and the personalities of the designers) have become the retroactive benchmark used to critique contemporary Scandinavian design.
