Hans Wegners Ladderback Chair (1966), with its fine joinery and exquisite form, demonstrates the Danish modern innovators roots as a cabinetmaker. Shaker-inspired, it features visible joints between the foreleg and the armrest, which help make the chair extremely strong. The hand-woven paper cord seat provides a compelling material contrast to the solid oak frame on this intuitively ergonomic chair that can be used for reading or as a statement piece. A fine example of Wegners trademark organic functionalism, the Ladderback combines the warmth of natural wood with the clean, minimal lines of midcentury modernism. One of Wegners more than 500 chair creations, it has a timeless shape that hasnt aged a bit since its conception in 1966. Made in Denmark.
