Vintage Teak Frank Reenskaug Spindle Back Rocking Chair Model 182. Denmark, 1958
Whimsical and comfortable Frank Reenskaug spindle back rocking chair in gorgeous old growth teak with vinyl cushion. Striking geometry and bold trompe l'oeil joinery really set this form apart from your typical rocker. Reenskaug made a daring and deliberate departure from the standard structure of rocking chairs, synthesizing elements from the canon of Danish design, as well as from the traditional Windsor "stick furniture" vocabulary, producing something entirely novel but still rooted in both rich design languages. Much of the best modern design is evolutionary rather than revolutionary, seeking to draw from and preserve the best of the past, while reducing clutter, decorative elements and maximizing visual and logistical simplicity. This seat appears to float, suspended by a careful consideration of the forces at play, and yet playful in it's unadorned confidence.
