Despite his preference for wood, the flagline, solid stainless steel and sheepskin construction of the Flag Halyard Chair demonstrates Hans Wegner’s versatility, and still retains his identity.

Designed in 1950, the shape and style of the Flag Halyard Chair were initially conceived as a result of a family trip to the beach. While the children were playing by the edge of the water, Wegner was busy fashioning a chair from sand in order to create somewhere comfortable and relaxing where he could enjoy the hot summer’s day. On returning to the summer house, Wegner drafted his first sketches, using the angles that he had created on the beach.

The Full Story

The futuristic feel of the Flag Halyard Chair echoes the designs of early modernists such as Marcel Breuer, Mies van der Rohe and Le Corbusier, but still with Wegner’s inimitable style. The wide, comfortable frame is crafted from solid stainless steel, with the seat and back featuring line upon line of specially developed flagline which provides support and comfort in a flexible way.

The sharp lines of the chair are softened with an optional long haired sheepskin and an upholstered neck cushion that offers an even greater level of comfort. With the stainless steel frame, the neck cushion, the flagline itself and the sheepskin all available in different colours and styles, the Flag Halyard Chair can easily be customised to fit your ideal requirements.

The Flag Halyard Chair is a fine example of Wegner’s dedication to combining practicality, comfort and aesthetics. Over the course of his career, he designed in excess of 500 different chairs, with the Flag Halyard Chair arguably one of the most recognisable. The ultimate in relaxation and luxury, its bold look is still as innovative and futuristic today as it was back in 1950. It also marks a deviation in Wegner’s normal style in two ways: while many of his pieces were crafted in wood and inspired by historical objects, the Flag Halyard chair uses no wood and was inspired by everyday life.

Demonstrating that Hans Wegner could turn his hand to a variety of different materials, the Flag Halyard Chair provides the ultimate luxury in a seamless blend of aesthetic appeal, maximum comfort and great functionality. This truly is a piece that is both a work of art and a functional and stylish piece of furniture, drawing in the playful style for which Wegner became known.
