In 1953, brothers Ejnar and Lars Peder Pedersen established their own workshop with a team of eight cabinet makers on a plot of land in Allerøod, Denmark. Since then, PP Møbler has become synonymous with fine Danish design, expanding the world’s technical and aesthetic understanding of what wood can do. As a testament to their talent, within five years the workshop was manufacturing masterpieces by famed architect Hans J. Wegner, including his cozy wingback PP19 Papa Bear Chair.
Over the next few decades, the workshop would remain family-run while collaborating with Wegner on new classics like 1986’s Circle Chair. In the late 1970s, they joined with another Danish genius, Poul Kjaerholm, to conceive acoustically-sensitive concert hall chairs for the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark. By the turn of the century, PP Møbler had worked with a host of international designers, including Nanna Ditzel for the blockbuster Trinidad Chair, and the tubular VIPP chair by Verner Panton — all while retaining its signature Danish character of restraint and respect for the materials.
