“ Architects, interior designers, industrial designers, craftspeople and fine artists have all designed chairs both as useful objects but also as a way to communicate their individual approach to design and its impact on users. Historically, chairs have presented designers with opportunities to address material constraints, proficiency in construction, scale and innovation in production, ergonomic research, and aesthetics and play among other themes. Chairs mirror the scale, form, gesture and structure of the human body - we see ourselves (conceptually and literally) in the chairs we design, make and use.”
