The Wegner Style Kennedy Chair is a high quality reproduction in the style of the original design.
The PP 503 or "the round one" as Wegner himself called it was first exhibited in 1949. One year later it was shown on the cover of the American magazine Interiors, who referred to it as the world's most beautiful chair. In 1960, the TV company CBS bought twelve copies of the chair for the first live broadcast of an election debate; between John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon. It was Kennedy who requested this chair; he wanted a comfortable chair for his aching back. 70 million people watched the Wegner chair on live broadcast and it was even mentioned in the newspaper election reports the day after. As a result the PP 503 has become known as the Kennedy Chair.
This chair is ideal for dining tables or study desks.
