The Story About Flag Halyard Chair:
The Flag Haylard Chair is a completely unique piece of furniture. At first glance, it does look futuristic. As such, the trivial conditions in which this chair came to be designed by the famed Hans Wegner make it all the more interesting. It was a hot afternoon in the summer. The kids were away splashing around in shallow waters. On the other hand, Wenger was busy digging the sand to create a chair that he could comfortably lie in and enjoy the day. Once he returned to his summerhouse, Wenger started to sketch something that would go on to become the Flag Halyard Chair PP225. His inspiration was the seating angles that he first used for his sand chair at the beach.
Wenger is known for preferring wood but he opted for steel in this piece. It simply goes on to show his incredible talent for creation and proves that he is just as elegant a master with steel as he is with wood. His Flag Halyard Chair is a tribute to the early modernists including Marcel Breuer and le Corbusier.
Who was the Designer of Flag Halyard Chair?
Hans Jørgensen Wegner was a world-famous furniture designer. Born in Denmark, he became renowned for his high quality work. He was instrumental in making mid-century Danish design popular across the world. Wenger’s Organic Functionality style is a modernist school of thought that places a lot of emphasis on functionality.
During his lifetime, Wenger designed more than 500 different chairs, many of which have become icons in the world of furniture design. Over a hundred of them entered mass production as well. Wenger’s work was all about pushing the traditional elements to their limit and some of his most famous pieces came about this way. He once worked with Arne Jacobsen, another legend among Danish designers. Wenger kept up a high level of productivity throughout his life, retiring only in his last decade.
