From the curved wooden furniture popular in the 1890s, to the development of new types of plastics that gave rise to a wealth of creative fantasy in the 1960s, 100 Years/100 Chairs examines the important role technology, politics and culture played in industrial furniture design. The exhibition presents chairs by Ron Arad, Charles Rennie Machintosh, Charles and Ray Eames, Philippe Starck, and Frank O. Gehry which demonstrate each design era. 100 Years/100 Chairs is organized by the Vitra Design Museum of Germany, home to one of the most extensive and renowned collections of modern furniture.
