Wegner’s ambition was to create an armchair which could be stowed away easily. He solved this by designing a chair which can be hung on the wall. Wegner made his solution with his usual assurance, and has brought all parts into perfect interplay. The Folding Chair is an unfailing mobile solution, providing for a place for the hands and that the chair also looks good when folded. First manufactured by Johannes Hansen between 1949 and 1992, then re-issued by PP Møbler since 1992.
