View inside the Chaise. Stoel. Chair. Exhibit

By utility, experimentation, irony, claim or by simple envy, the chair appears as one of the “unavoidables” of the path of many designers. As an everyday object, it materializes and sometimes questions the cultural, technical and historical background of society. While our collective imagination associates it with a seat, a backrest and four legs, the chair actually meets our specific needs and is constantly adapting to the practices and evolution of technology and different ways of sitting. Using a variety of materials and textures, the concept then takes various forms: chaise longue, office chair, wheelchair, seat, bench, stool, pouffe or folding chair.

The Chaise. Stoel. Chair. Defining Design exhibition retraces the world of design from the end
of the 19th century to the present day through this object – the chair – in constant redefinition,
reaffirmation and hybridization.
