Done, Undone, Redone, The Chair

Exhibition Website

Sep 10 2016 - Dec 4 2016

The evolution of the chair has depended upon the human body and the history of previous designs. The challenge of chair design is to balance form and function; it is as important to look at a chair as it is to sit in it. This exhibition explores the morphology of chair design and the 'object-ness' of the chair as a sculptural statement. Works from the eighteenth century to present day, including modern icons by Eames, Rietveld, Schindler, and Weber, reveal both the rejection and the revisiting of earlier styles.
