More than any other piece of furniture, the chair has been subjected to the wildest dreams of the designer. The particular curve of a backrest, or the twist of a leg, the angle of a seat or the color of the entire artifact; each element reflects the stylistic consciousness of an era. From Gerrit Rietveld and Alvar Aalto to Verner Panton and Eva Zeisel, from Art Nouveau to International Style, from Pop Art to Postmodernism, the history of the chair is so complex that it requires a comprehensive encyclopedic work 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. Early designers and pioneers of the modern chair are presented alongside the most recent innovations in seating. This dedicated compendium displays each chair as pure form, along with biographical and historical information about the pieces and their designers. An illuminating tome for design aficionados and an essential reference for collectors! About the series Bibliotheca Universalis - Compact cultural companions celebrating the eclectic TASCHEN universe!

  1. 1000 chairs
    Tilde , 26 juni 2021

    Bra och korta beskrivningar om varje stol på tre olika språk. Rolig att bläddra i och få idéer för den som gillar möbler eller är intresserad av design. Kul att det är designer och stolar från olika länder. Stolarna är i tidsordning, så man kan bläddra och se hur designen har ändrat genom åren.
