The chair, a basic item of furniture found in any home, has reflected social and aesthetic changes throughout history. It provides an ideal medium for experimentation with new materials or technologies, and challenges the creativity of designers devising new ways to defy gravity's immutable laws to provide support for the human body.
Through vivid photography and commentary, this lushly illustrated volume describes all facets of chairs, from classic designs that have withstood the test of time to revolutionary and modern creations of young designers who have transformed the chair into an object of art.
