Divine Design: Glorious Chairs From Polyester Fleece To The Pencil Bench

Posted: Updated:

The notion of redesigning the chair for a modern, innovative, design-centric world seems similar to redesigning the wheel. As a concept, is it really necessary? We've got classic Eames chairs, Biedermeier style, colorful plastic from Kartell, the fainting couch, and the Lazy Boy - need we go on? The short answer is, yes. From chairs that look like NASA experiments to lounges with a full family in mind, the act of sitting is, apparently, ever evolving. No, using a medicine ball as an office chair does not count as innovation.
