    Sit back, relax and take a look at some of the most iconic chairs in history. This reference book is a must for any design and especially chair design enthusiast. The book presents all relevant information about the designer and their work for each chair, from Alvar Aalto to Charles & Ray Eames to Eva Zeisel, from Art Nouveau to International Style. This freshly updated edition presents archetypal seating furniture from the 19th century to the most innovative designs of the present day.

    Seating from A to Z: classics of chair design

    In the world of furniture design, the chair occupies a special position, because hardly any other piece of furniture is so characterized by the creative energy of designers. Every detail - be it the elegant curve of a backrest, the artistic design of the legs, the ergonomic shape of the seat or the choice of color - tells the story of design eras.

    The spectrum of designers ranges from Gerrit Rietveld and Alvar Aalto to Verner Panton and Eva Zeisel. It also covers different stylistic eras, from the elegance of Art Nouveau to the functional International Style and the expressive forms of Pop Art and Postmodernism. Famous creations such as Thonet's bentwood chairs, Hoffmann's functional seating concepts, Marcel Breuer's iconic Wassily chair and Ron Arad's avant-garde designs are just a few examples of the design diversity.

    This special work presents each chair not only as an aesthetic object, but also provides comprehensive biographical and historical background on the creations and their creators. The book is a resource for any design enthusiast and an essential reference book for collectors.

    The authors Charlotte and Peter Fiell, recognized authorities in the field of design, have contributed significantly to the understanding of design with over 60 publications. Their expertise also extends to transportation design. In addition to their writing, they have gained worldwide recognition through lectures, teaching assignments, exhibition curation and consulting for production companies, museums and collectors. Their contribution to the TASCHEN publishing house includes several major titles.
