Summary, etc
  • Chair Anatomy' reveals in photos and illustrations the form and the construction details - the anatomy - of a selection of fifty chairs chosen from the last 150 years of modern chair design. It also introduces the designers behind these chairs, their backgrounds and their routes to creating the chairs. In reducing chairs to their constituent parts, the book gets to the heart of each design: how pieces are designed and produced to fit together; why a certain material imparts a certain quality, functional advance or comfort level; and how the chair's structure can withstand stress while being elegant and economical to produce. In short, a chair is architecture in miniature.

A unique resource for students, professionals, and the design- obsessed, that reveals how the iconic chairs of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries have been designed for mass production

From offices to dining tables, lounging to working, chairs are ubiquitous pieces of design.

Designers and architects, whose work revolves around space, comfort, and function, have grappled with making the perfect--or most unusual--chairs for centuries. Most chairs, however, are not one- offs but are manufactured in large quantities, to be shipped around the world, displayed, and marketed. We only really see the end product and rarely know how our chair has come into being.

Through the painstaking work of deconstructing and reducing chairs to their constituent parts, Chair Anatomy gets to the heart of more than fifty iconic designs: how pieces were designed and produced to fit together; why a certain material imparts a certain quality, functional advance, or comfort level; how the chair's structure can withstand stress while being elegant and economical to produce.

Offering a truly nuts- and- bolts perspective on masterpieces of design, Chair Anatomy gives insight into a piece of furniture that we so often take for granted.
