The timeless Flag Halyard chair was created by Danish designer Hans J Wegner, who came up with the concept on a hot summer day while watching his kids playing on the beach.
Wegner dug a hole in the sand to create a reclining seated position that still allowed him a good view, and ideas for the ergonomic design started flowing.
He took the concept back to his beach house for further development and it was only a short time before the chair went into production.
The Flag Halyard design combines an unlikely mixture of materials such as linen, stainless steel and leather.
Specially developed rope is tightly woven around an industrial-style frame, with a shaggy Icelandic sheepskin and plump neck cushion, either leather or fabric, added for next-level comfort.
It takes one highly skilled worker 14 hours to weave the rope used in the chair’s construction.
Natural linen is woven around a strong core to ensure the seat doesn’t stretch over time.
Wegner’s Flag Halyard Chair was initially made by Getama in limited numbers, but was never a runaway commercial success.
More recently however, it has been put back into production by PP Møbler.
Becaues it started gaining traction with consumers again, several other manufacturers such as Manhattan Home Design began creating replicas and reproductions at a more affordable price.
In this article we are going to share the top 3 Replicas and Reproductions of Wegners Flag Halyard Chair.
