Peter’s Chair was created by Hans J. Wegner during World War II. Finding quality products in wartime Europe was not easy, so when Wegner needed a suitable christening gift for Peter, the son of his friend and fellow furniture designer Børge Mogensen, he took matters into his own hands and crafted the gift himself. An accomplished cabinetmaker, Wegner conceived and built a simple yet ingenious chair that would work as both a functional piece of furniture and an engaging toy. Designed as a life-size three-dimensional puzzle in untreated beech, the chair is easily assembled without the use of tools – to the great excitement of children and adults alike. Peter’s Chair combines perfectly with Peter’s Table. Together, these furniture pieces reveal the extent of Wegner’s innovative spirit as well as his superior ability to fulfill the natural interest of children without compromising on design and quality.
