Product info

 Dive into Thierry Barbier-Mueller’s eclectic private collection of chairs in The Spirit of Chairs. Within these pages, you’ll find a diverse parade of over 650 seats — including many that are not actually meant to be sat in — which were amassed over the course of decades by the art and design collector himself. From Charles Kaisin’s oddly textural Hairy Chair and Bruno Manari’s humorous Chair for very Brief Visits to Manfred Kielnhofer’s eco-friendly Paper Tube Chair and Goncalo Mabunda’s thought-provoking Weapon Throne, the pieces featured within these pages all occupy a rare space between form and function, allowing the viewer to explore the sculptural possibilities of what a chair can be. Each one is captured in detailed color photographs from Nicolas Polli and Jean Vincent Simonet, while a series of essays from a host of art historians and writers anchor the collection in its art historical context and offer a look into the mind of a passionate collector. Sure to delight and inspire, The Spirit of Chairs is a must-have for any art- or design-lover’s book collection.
