Made from a variety of materials, using a range of processes, these chairs demonstrate the complexity and inventiveness of design within the cultural and historical context of each creation.Including iconic chairs from well-known 20th-century designers and architects such as Frank Gehry, Robert Venturi, Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames, and Isamu Noguchi, along with 19th-century designers John Henry Belter and the Herter Brothers firm, The Art of Seating tells the dynamic and engaging story of furniture design and production in the United States.
