Description

Comprising the effort of more than a century of collecting chairs, the Faculty of Architecture of the TU Delft can pride itself on having one of the major furniture collections in the Netherlands. Set up as an educational tool, the collection has offered knowledge about materials, construction and typology to students and designers.

In the catalogue, the entire collection of over 240 chairs is presented for the first time. Each object is accompanied by images and a thorough description. Also, the book offers comprehensive texts on key designs in the collection, showing the diversity of the collection which consists of world famous designs, 17th, 18th and 19th century designs, everyday household chairs and rare pieces of furniture that have never been published before. Among the designers presented are Verner Panton, Gerrit Th. Rietveld, Hendrik Petrus Berlage, Jean Prouv, Marcel Breuer and Droog Design.
