A Danish Family owns workshop PP Mobler and is currently set to unveil its latest release, the Tub Chair. It's a rare prototype that Hans J. Wegner first designed in the 1950s and PP Mobler has recreated it to pay tribute to its 100th anniversary.

The chair is being put into production and is debuting exclusively in Milan at Salone del Mobile 2014. Wegner was always a pioneer when it came to experimenting with techniques and materials and the Tub Chair is no exception. The design showcases Wegner's use of molding plywood techniques with upholstery and traditional woodwork.

To the chair he also added an angle adjustment mechanism so you can lounge at your comfort level. Even though the chair's design originated from the 1950s, it still maintains modern relevance and style.
