The Political Seat


Known simply as 'The Chair', Hans Wegner's Round Chair, 1949 (PP 503) was made famous in 1960, seating Kennedy and Nixon during the first nationally televised presidential debate. I've also been enjoying spotting Wegner's and other danish modern extra's lurking in the 60's office spaces of Matthew Weiner's Mad Men.
