Ladder-Back Chair, 2013
Zelouf+Bell Furniture Makers
The Zelouf+Bell Ladder-back chair, was made for a client who wanted a visually impressive but uncomfortable chair to sit in the hallway beside the telephone so that people would not stay too long on the phone. With a respectful nod to that great designer of uncomfortable chairs, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, it was designed in collaboration with Sasha Sykes, who has created acrylic panels between the rungs of the ladder, embedded with organic matter and ferns.
Materials: Wood, acrylic resin panels
Year purchased: 2013
