Sit back, relax and view some of the most iconic chairs in history. This reference book is a must for every design and especially chair design enthusiast. For each chair, the book presents all relevant information about the designer and his work, from Alvar Aalto to Charles & Ray Eames to Eva Zeisel, from Art Nouveau to International Style. This newly updated edition presents archetypal seating from the 19th century to today's most innovative designs.

Sitting from A to Z: classic chair design

In the world of furniture design, the chair occupies a special position because hardly any other piece of furniture is so influenced by the designers' creative energy. 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 the design eras.

The spectrum of designers ranges from Gerrit Rietveld and Alvar Aalto to Verner Panton and Eva Zeisel. It also encompasses different stylistic eras, from the elegance of Art Nouveau to the functional International Style to 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 not only presents each chair as an aesthetic object, but also provides comprehensive biographical and historical background on the creations and their creators. The book is a resource for every design lover and an essential reference book for collectors.

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