Flag Halyard chair – An experimental mid century modern design

When you take a look at the almost futuristic stainless steel frame and shallow angle reminiscent of seats of a space shuttle, it is hard to imagine that Hans Wegner came up with this experimental design almost 70 years ago, back in 1950. Best known for his exceptional and history-making wooden dining chairs, with Flag Halyard Hans Wegner showed to the world that he is just as skillful with more modern industrial materials, but also more modern and almost avant-garde approaches to design.

When we take a peek beneath the elegant hand-woven seat, we discover a rather typical cabinetmaker’s construction, adjusted slightly so that it can be produced in metal instead of wood. This simple base is then further elaborated with hand-woven rope seat that relies on simple elegance and rustic, natural texture. This utilization of typical carpenter techniques in the production of mid-century era lounge chairs is yet another signature of Wegner’s designer genius. Finished with a head cushion and a sheepskin cover, Hans Wegner’s Flag Halyard chair perfectly incorporates different and contrasting textures and materials in a truly iconic seating solution.

History of Wegner Flag Halyard chair

Whether Wegner designed his most experimental chair out of curiosity for new materials (as this design is significantly different from his more conventional works such as Shell lounge chair made out of plywood, for example), desire to experiment or to show that he can just as easily adapt avant-garde design postulates to his own unique philosophy will remain a mystery. In fact, much of the history about Flag Halyard remains unknown, aside from an account (or maybe a legend) about Wegner’s accidental discovery of the rough shape and structure of this design. As the story goes, Hans Wegner was on a vacation with his family, killing time on the beach, when he decided to quickly mold the sand underneath him and find the most comfortable sitting position. Soon after, the rough outline of Flag Halyard took shape and Wegner decorated his little ‘sand chair’ with a bit of rope he found nearby – and that is how the idea formed in his mind. Upon returning from a vacation, Wegner went straight to his workshop and started working on what will become his most experimental and extraordinary design.
