History Lesson: Hans Wegner Papa Bear Chair

separator

“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 Teddy Bear Chair has been one of the most popular Wegner designs of all.”
