Interdisciplinary authors come together to reflect on the history of chair design through 101 selected chairs.

Every chair tells its own story, and all of them fit into this book—even the stories in which design is not overtly the topic at hand. Chairs and artificial intelligence; famous chairs on which Freud, Pessoa or Proust sat; chairs as historical, political and societal symbols; chairs for thin or corpulent people; rocking, creative, royal chairs: all these facets of chairs and more are packed into this volume.
