Dyckman Chair: Replica Hans Wegner Papa Bear Chair and Footstools

Maxwell Blake’s dyckman collection offers affordable, quality reproductions of the classic Hans Wegner papa bear chair, also known as PP19 The Teddy Bear Chair.

Designed in 1951, this handsome chair has become a popular icon of mid-century modern Danish design. Its partner in comfort, the PP120 Teddy Bear Stool, was designed by Wegner in 1954.

Born in 1914, Hans Wegner's high quality and thoughtful designs made him a world renowned craftsman of furniture, with a style often described as “organic functionalism”. Uniting form and function, Wegner places the highest demands on comfort and ergonomics, creating chairs that are more than a pieces of furniture – they are works of art made to support the human form.

Over his life, Wegner designed more than 500 different chairs, many of which have also become internationally recognized designs including the ox, peacock and wishbone chairs, replicas of which are also available from Maxwell Blake. Like many of his other creations, the characteristically playful and organic design of the papa bear chair holds reference to the animal kingdom, receiving its name after a critic referred to its armrests as 'great bear paws embracing you from behind'. Indeed, the papa bear chair is not too hard, not too soft, with wood tipped arms that embrace the sitter with a big bear hug.

Our papa bear chair and footstool replicas honor Wegner's original designs, and are just as rich and decadent as a lounge chair could possibly be.

Both pieces are available in a range of fine fabrics and leathers and, together or separately, are almost guaranteed to offer you many years of comfortable seating enjoyment and relaxation.
