Email a Friend
"Lobby Chair" in an exhibition called, "The Furniture of Charles and Ray Eames - Products, Processes, Prototypes," at the Vitra Design Museum,  Weil am Rhein, Germany, in March 2007.

This week's Please Explain has us on the edge of our seats! From the Klismos, to the Eames, we're talking about the history of chairs and chair design with Witold Rybczynski, an architect, writer and an emeritus professor of architecture at the University of Pennsylvania. He’s the author of, Now I Sit Me Down: From Klismos to Plastic Chair: A Natural History.
