Hans Wegner’s Ladderback Chair (1966), with its fine joinery and exquisite form, demonstrates the Danish modern innovator’s 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 Wegner’s trademark organic functionalism, the Ladderback combines the warmth of natural wood with the clean, minimal lines of midcentury modernism. One of Wegner’s more than 400 chair creations, it has a timeless shape that hasn’t aged a bit since its conception in 1966. Made in Denmark.
