Synopsis: Chairs displayed on their own as pure form: An overview of the 20th century   More than any other piece of furniture, the chair has been subjected to the wildest dreams of the designers. The particular curve of a backrest, or the twist of a leg, the angle of a seat or the color of the entire artifact all reflect the stylistic consciousness of each era.

From  Gerrit Rietveld and  Alvar Aalto to  Verner Panton to  Eva Zeisel, from Art Nouveau to International Style, from Pop Art to Postmodernism, the phenomenon of the chair is so complex that it requires a reference work as comprehensive as this to do it full justice. They are all here:  Thonet?s bentwood chairs and  Hoffmann?s sitting-machines,  Marcel Breuer?s Wassily chair and  Ron Arad?s avant-garde armchairs.

The book devotes one page to each chair, displayed on its own as pure form, with biographical and historical information about the chairs and their designers. A special treat for anyone who loves design and a  must for collectors!   About the Series:
