a century of chairs


the design museum london has a nice online exhibition, a century of chairs. you can choose to have a look at chairs from the late 1800s until recently designed chairs of today. (via)

“few objects tell the history of modern design as eloquently as the chair. aesthetics trends, the emergence of new technologies, ergonomics, social and cultural developments are all reflected in the evolution of chair design.”

my favorite decade is the 1940s with the developments of eames and emeco and my favorite modern chair is the chair mari by enzo mari.
