With a frame made of solid stainless steel, 240 metres specially developed flag line forming the seat and back, and a longhaired sheepskin softening the industrial sharpness of the steel, this chair constitutes ultimate and luxurious relaxation!
Although the appearance of the Flag Halyard Chair seems rather futuristic, the basic idea was conceived on a hot summer afternoon in rather trivial circumstances. While the kids were playing in the shallow waters along the beach, Wegner was digging himself into the sand building a comfortable chair to enjoy the holidays. Back in the summerhouse Wegner made the first sketches using the seating angles that he had conceived on the beach.
Despite having obvious preferences for wood, Wegner shows his bold and courageous appetite for creating. With the Flag Halyard Chair he pays a tribute to the early modernists such as Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, and Marcel Breuer, and proves that he masters stainless steel with the same conclusive elegance as he masters wood.
