Chairs, and random photos

The Art Institute of Chicago owns a world-class collection of architecture and design objects, in addition to paintings, prints, photos, and objects d’art.

I spent a few minutes on Sunday marveling at mid-century modern design at the exhibition of chairs in their collection.

We possess collections of two of these chairs at Webster University — chairs I touch nearly every day, and think nothing of their design provenance, nor their intrinsic value in the industrial landscape.
