Overview

Hans J. Wegner Peacock Chair. Inspired by the designer: Hans J. Wegner Wishbone.


Description


Throughout Hans Wegner's long career, he designed furniture mainly for Fritz Hansen and Johannes Hansen. Hans J. Wegner was a very talented and minimalistic designer, as his creation seemed to be extravagant in lay out, but were in reality a simple and innovative combination of materials that at first would have never even been put together. Finn Juhl named the Peacock Chair, after its distinctive back silhouette, by him just pointing out that it looked like a peacock, and then the suggestion stayed with the chair. And with all of Wegner's designs he stuck to ideals of every piece having careful craftsmanship, with particular attention to the intricate shape, and its overall comfort, and the Peacock Chair was no different.

The chair was first introduced in 1947, and that was four years after leaving the practice of Arne Jacobsen, whom for a while he had worked for. The entire appearance of the Peacock Chair was a strong standing, postmodern and beautiful, but the advanced feel and aura it portrayed did well to hide its true age. Thus, the chair's vibrance never really faded over the years, as later generations thought it to be a brand new design altogether.

The peacock design also provides huge support for the back and there is comfort for the arms as well. It was and still is a work of joinery masterpiece, as Hans J. Wegner had a habit of making something great out of simple materials
