PLEASE HAVE A SEAT

Readers of all ages will delight in this colourful introduction to chairs, extraordinary works of art…

 

Please Have a Seat takes readers on a fun-filled tour of different seats, such as a farmer’s stool, director’s chair or public benches, alongside the most important chairs created by the greatest designers of the twentieth and twenty first centuries such as Sottsass, Perriand, Jacobsen or Eames.
Whether beautiful, easy to use, comfortable, playful, artful… each chair or seat was chosen for what it says about its designer, who, as an engineer, artist or craftsman, listens to the needs of society, in order to create the best possible seat of all time!
Each section begins with a brief presentation of the designer and their work. Illustrator Didier Cornille pays special attention to key design innovations and signature details. His acute and charming drawings, along with his easy to read text, unlock the secrets of design. A book to enjoy… comfortably seated, of course!
