Item Description

What is it that distinguishes a chair designed by an architect? Why is it so tempting for an architect to have a chair in his or her portfolio? Is it possible to use creative solutions interchangeably in both domains?

'Chairs by Architects' answers these and many other questions to show how qualities in the buildings by architects are also evident in their chair designs: pieces of furniture, like manifestos, become signatures of architectural style. The 55 architects include early modern architectural pioneers such as Otto Wagner, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Antoni Gaudí and Walter Gropius, together with more recent modern masters such as Oscar Niemeyer, Santiago Calatrava, Frank Gehry, Daniel Libeskind and the late Zaha Hadid.

The book contains interviews on Designing (in conversation with David Adjaye), Manufacturing (David E. Bright, Knoll Inc.), Selling (Zeev Aram), Collecting (Richard Wright) and Preserving (Susanne Graner, Vitra Design Museum).

This is essential reading for everyone with an interest in design, architecture and the relationship between creators and their creations.

‘Visually it works as a simple way of identifying the language of desgn. It is also intriguing to see how highly accomplished architects tackle a smaller object’    –    Spinach Design
