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 the emerging molding plywood technique with upholstery and traditional wood work. He even added an angle adjustment mechanism to the back so you can lounge at your particular comfort level.

Even though the design is from the 1950s, it still looks completely modern, doesn’t it?
