Chairevolution: Revolution or Evolution? – Wenzel Friedrich

Posted on by IMG

The exhibition “Chairevolution! 300 Years of Designing the Chair” , now on view at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, offers a chronological sampling of the evolution of Western style and design through one object we all use—the chair. It also challenges us to look critically at those moments when makers and designers rejected traditional styles and created something completely new—those moments when evolution became revolution!

Here’s your chance to be a curator!

Does this chair from the MIA’s collection represent evolution, revolution, or both? Tell us why and check back later as more chairs are added to the mix!
