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
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
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!
