Daydreaming comes easy when you’re lounging around in this magnificent chair. The Flag Halyard is one of our favorite lounge chairs because of its unique industrial design and cradling comfort.
The chair was designed by leading Danish mid-century designer, Hans J. Wegner whose pieces are as well known for their craftsmanship, aesthetic appeal and functionality as much as their quantity. The Wishbone Chair, Wing Chair, Shell Chair, Papa Chair and Plank Chair are just a few of his many works still in production today.
Placing importance on ergonomic design, Wegner fully believed that furniture was art made to comfort the body. The original idea for the Flag Halyard Chair came to Wegner while he was sitting watching his children play in the sand. Wegner was digging himself into the sand building himself a comfortable chair when he conceived an idea inspired by the sand and the sea.
The Flag Halyard’s abandonment of wood for steel came from the influence of Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe and Marcel Breuer. The wide stainless steel frame is brought together by 240 meters of flag line forming the seat and back, and offering the name of this iconic chair. The beautiful heavy rope chair is topped off with a long-haired sheepskin rug for the ultimate relaxation.
