Chair Times

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.
