Obsessed with chairs (title taken from binding).
Messstetten-Tieringen, Interstuhl Büromöbel GMBH & Co KG 2000.
Folio. 70 + (2)pp, many photo ills. Publisher’s boards. Brian Housden’s copy.
A striking promotional volume for the Insterstuhl firm, a family business with 460 employees and a very substantial turnover, who are self-proclaimed manufacturers of “extraordinary chairs”. The volume itself does not advertise the firm’s products in any obvious way but uses evocative images to indicate the skills involved in the chair-manufacturing process.
