Chair Anatomy: Design and Construction
Through the painstaking work of deconstructing and reducing chairs to their constituent parts, Chair Anatomy gets to the heart of more than fifty iconic designs: how pieces were designed and produced to fit together; why a certain material imparts a certain quality, functional advance, or comfort level; how the chair's structure can withstand stress while being elegant and economical to produce. Offering a truly nuts- and- bolts perspective on masterpieces of design, Chair Anatomy gives insight into a piece of furniture that we so often take for granted.
