How to make the back of PP66 and PP56

Wegner presented his first version of the Chinese Chair at the Cabinetmakers’ Guild Autumn Exhibition in 1943.

He was inspired by an old Chinese chair, which he had carefully studied.

PP66 was designed in 1945 and became the modern result of Wegner’s studies of Chinese chairs.

The upholstered version – PP56 – was added in 1989.

The PP66 / PP56 has a high and comfortable backrest and armrest in full length that fits well under the table top.
