VITRA DESIGN MUSEUM

Chair Times

A History of Seating

Edited by Heinz Bütler. Text by Rolf Fehlbaum, Mateo Kries. Contributions by Franco Audrito, Ronan Bouroullec, Christian Brändle, David Chipperfield, Antonio Citterio, Pierre de Meuron, Jochen Eisenbrand, Ulrich Fiedler, Susanne Graner, Jacques Herzog, Hella Jongerius, Maira Kalman, Amelie Klein, Serge Mauduit, Peter Noever, Arthur Rüegg, Leonie Samland, Ruggero Tropeano.

Chair Times: A History of Seating takes the reader on a journey through a “sea of chairs.” Here, 124 objects dating from 1807 to the latest 3D-printed designs are arranged in the order of their production year, to create a timeline of modern furniture design. Professionals in the design field (gallerists, curators, conservators, artists and designers) were invited to choose objects from the Vitra Design Museum collection to discuss; contributors include Franco Audrito, Ronan Bouroullec, David Chipperfield, Antonio Citterio, Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron, Susanne Graner, Hella Jongerius, Maira Kalman and Amelie Klein, among others. Serving as guide on this excursion is Rolf Fehlbaum, former CEO of Vitra.
Published to accompany the documentary film of the same name, the book includes a USB drive with the associated feature documentary as well as the “Chair Stories”: a series of short interviews with key design protagonists about the history of seating design.
