Hard to find – Chair Design Masterpieces

As once said in an old Eames Lounge chair advertisement “a good chair nowadays, is hard to find”. So, it begs the question, why is it so hard to find a perfect compromise between comfort and design? And why would you look for it in the first place? Well, here at Light & Shade we believe that “something else” comes from good design, something greater…and when in “its” presence there need be no concern about compromise, it’s just implicit, as would Louis Kahn put it:

“Design is not making beauty, beauty emerges from selection, affinities, integration, love.”

So, with no further due, from Le Corbusier to Charles Eames, here are some of history’s most beautiful “thrones”.
