Item description for 1000 Chairs (Taschen 25) by Charlotte Fiell & Peter Fiell...

The ubiquitous chair in all its shapes and forms (TASCHEN's 25th anniversary special edition) More than any other piece of furniture, the chair has been subjected to the wildest dreams of the designers. The particular curve of a back-rest, or the twist of a leg, the angle of a seat or the colour of the entire artefact all reflect the stylistic consciousness of each era. From Gerrit Rietveld and Alvar Aalto via Verner Panton to Eva Zeisel; from Art Nouveau to International Style, from Pop Art to Postmodernism, the phenomenon of the chair is so complex that it requires a reference work as comprehensive as this to do it full justice. They are all here: Thonet's bentwood chairs and Hoffmann's sitting-machines, Marcel Breuer's Wassily chair and Ron Arad's avant garde armchairs. The book, a slightly abbreviated version of our classic title 1000 Chairs, devotes one page to each chair, displayed on its own as pure form, with biographical and historical information about the chair.

Reviews - What do customers think about 1000 Chairs (Taschen 25)?

Amazing book!  May 5, 2008
Wow! This is book is insanely full of colorful photos and interesting information about each chair. In fact, my boyfriend has his own copy... he loves it that much!
Picture Book  Jan 10, 2007
If you just want to see alot of chairs with basic information, this is the way to go. Real pretty.
excellent purchase if you like chairs and design  Feb 20, 2006
The order came in quickly, book was in tip-top condition. You can cnsider this a quality book if you like chairs and the history and the evolvement of design in chairs. The pictures are fun to look at and you can marvel at the creativity of the designers.
Glad I bought it  Jan 13, 2006
I make chairs (and other furniture) out of found wood. I bought this book out of profits from the sale of one chair, and within the first 50 pages, I had ideas for several more chairs I wouldn't have thought of on my own. I just look at the pictures; not particularly interested in the history or designer or derivation. If you want ideas for making chairs and you can figure out the construction details for yourself, this is a useful book.

Well-made book, BTW. Isn't going to fall apart if I leave it in the shop and can stand up to a fair amount of sawdust.
Aprobado... pero con lo justo  Oct 6, 2005
Interesante como guía general.
Buenas fotos, pero falto de contenido, y de pobre edición.
