Mainly this posting is about the chair.
Like many other Wegner chairs, The Papa Bear Chair seems to refer to the animal kingdom with its characteristically playful and organic design. The chair received its name after a critic had referred to its armrests as 'great bear paws embracing you from behind'. In the later years, The Papa Bear Chair has been one of the most popular Wegner designs of all.
Be embraced by the great bear paws of this all time maximum comfort easy chair. Consider it an investment for life as gifted Danish craftsmen spend at least two weeks hand crafting each chair to the highest standards. The solid wooden frame is strongly joint and shaped to form a solid base for the comprehensive traditional upholstery work.
Four natural materials constitute the comfortable upholstery: cotton fibre, palm fibre, flax fibre and horsehair. And of course metal springs, providing sensitive support for the back. With this kind of genuine upholstery you will have a chair that will wear in rather than wear out. This chair will be softer and even more comfortable with the use that is applied to it.
Initiating production of the frames in 1953, the Papa Bear Chair was the first Hans J. Wegner design to be produced at PP Møbler, and it marked the beginning of a life-long passionate collaboration involving generations of craftsmen and countless hours of work in the workshop developing prototypes and production techniques for numerous Wegner models. And yet the Papa Bear Chair remains the most exclusive piece of them all.
