IN ORDER OF APPEARANCE

20th century chair design


Opening March 9th

Exhibition March 10 - July 23, 2012


Armchair, Cantilever Chair, Fold Up Chair, Folding Chair, Rocking Chair, Swivel Chair. No piece of furniture comes in such diverse forms as the chair.


The exhibition plays with tensions of oppositions by using groups or pairings of innovative forms from scandinavian and international 20th century furniture design. It shows important design classics, technical innovations, unique pieces, prototypes and rare examples that help shed light on the evolution of 20th century chair design. The analytic contemplation of form, proportion, color, and material allow relations between the furniture to reveal new information about the different artistic approaches and motivations.
