Chairs: The Delft Collection
The Faculty of Architecture of the TU Delft can pride itself on one of the foremost furniture collections in the Netherlands. Set up as an educational tool, the collection has offered knowledge about materials, construction and typology to students and designers for more than a century. In this catalogue, the entire collection of over 240 chairs is presented for the first time. Each object is accompanied by a thorough description. Also, the book offers comprehensive texts on key designs in the collection, which consists of seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth century designs, everyday household chairs and rare pieces of furniture that have never been reproduced before. Among the designers presented are Verner Panton, Gerrit Rietveld, Hendrik Petrus Berlage, Jean Prouvé, Marcel Breuer and Droog Design.
