About this deal

Trading Address (Warehouse) Unit E, Vulcan Business Complex, Vulcan Road, Leicester, Leicestershire, LE5 3EB. Charlotte and Peter Fiell are well-known design authors having written over sixty books on the subject. The publication of this new edition means that this indispensable survey of landmark seating design now comes right up to present day. From Gerrit Rietveld and Alvar Aalto to Verner Panton and Eva Zeisel, from Art Nouveau to International Style, from Pop Art to Postmodernism, the history of the chair is so complex that it requires a comprehensive encyclopedic work to do it full justice.

Our team is made up of book lovers who are dedicated to sourcing and providing the best books for kids. I’m not only talking about socialist time after war when there was a lot really good design in this part of Europe but also modern times when there was designed inflatable steel stool and won for a Mars expedition and other great projects.

The particular curve of a backrest, or the twist of a leg, the angle of a seat or the color of the entire artifact; each element reflects the stylistic consciousness of an era. The Fiells have lectured widely, guest taught courses, curated exhibitions, and consulted manufacturing companies, museums, salerooms, and major private collectors around the world. More than any other piece of furniture, the chair has been subjected to the wildest dreams of the designer.

From Gerrit Rietveld and Alvar Aalto via Verner Panton to Eva Zeisel; from Art Nouveau to International Style, from Pop Art to Postmodernism, the phenomenon of the chair is so complex that it requires a reference work as comprehensive as this to do it full justice.

The Fiells first published their round-up of chairs in 1997 and it has since become a bible for those who are interested in the story of seating.From Gerrit Rietveld and Alvar Aalto to Verner Panton to Eva Zeisel, from Art Nouveau to International Style, from Pop Art to Postmodernism, the phenomenon of the chair is so complex that it requires a reference work as comprehensive as this to do it full justice. Why I like it: I'll put it this way: after reading this book, every time I watch a TV show set anytime within the past 150 years, I'm now distracted by identifying the kind of chair, examining the details of its construction and style, and considering where that chair fits in the timeline of chair design paradigms.
