Iconic chair by Hans Wegner (1914 – 2007). This model is known as Model 225 or Flag Halyard Chair. It is very original in Wegner creations as he used to work mostly with wood. The legend says that he was challenged to design a metal chair and here is his answer. It is also said that the idea of the design came to him on a beach in Arhus (Denmark): the shape of the chair is modeled on the form of a seat carved out in the sand beach to be perfectly adapted to the human body. The name Flag Halyard comes from the type of rope used for the chair and which is extremely strong and resistant. The chair comprises a stainless steel lacquered in white, rope, a cushion and a sheep skin (modern). This is one of the early edition from 1950 by the original manufacturer Getama. It bears the typical signs of a Getama edition : chair shoes in wood, numbered 384 on the steel frame. It was made by hand with 240 meters of rope and few were produced as part of the early edition. The chair is in good condition, ancient repairs have been made on the ropes : two are visible, four are below the seat.
