A Taxonomy of Office Chairs

A Taxononomy of Office Chairs is a book that resulted from a four year investigation that was undertaken to fully map the evolution of the office chair from its first appearance in the mid-nineteenth century until today. Over forty of the world's leading designers, furniture engineers and historians were interviewed in the US, Europe and Japan, and over 400 illustrations were created to chart the evolution of the office chair. The project was funded by Knoll and the book was published by Phaidon Press in 2011.
