Desk Chair

Spring 2012

This chair is inspired by one of Hans Wegner’s desk chairs, which designed to be comfortable as well as promote good posture. This chair is designed to cradle the body and support the lower back.
A significant challenge in the design of this chair was the curved back and arm piece. In the end, this piece was assembled from four pieces of maple and the center piece of cherry with a darker wood veneer between the layers to accentuate the assembly.
