Flag Halyard Chair by Hans Wegner
Flag Halyard Chair, 1950 by Hans Wegner + white sheepskin
Made by Getama, steel and Halyard
With the Flag Halyard chair, Hans Wegner pay a tribute the modernists like le Corbusier, Mies van de Rohe and Marcel Breuer. He proved at the same time he was also a master in the use of steel tubes. Despite this infidelity to wood, his favorite material, the Flag Halyard chair features a wegnerien style. The flat surfaces are made using a long, single halyard flag, 140 meter long, covered with a longhaired sheepskin that comes to soften - and somehow contradict - the coldness of the steel industry.
The flag line is made of natural line woven around a core strong enough to avoid stretching over time. A skilled worker makes the weaving in about 14 hours. The PP225 chair is available in natural and black linen.
