JH512 Folding Chair designed by Hans J. Wegner (1949)

The JH512 Folding Chair was first manufactured by Johannes Hansen (Soeborg) between 1949 and 1992. Reissued as PP512 by PP Møbler since 1992.
Wegner was always fascinated with the concept of the folding chair. It was an idea based on 19th century military campaign furniture, which was designed to be disassembled at a moment’s notice and transported to the next camp. He found in this historical concept a solution to the challenges of modern living.
