In recent years the world of furniture design has been completely transformed. Once a fairly restrictive field in which form tended to follow function, it is today one of the most dynamic of all creative disciplines. Across a wide range of approaches - sometimes powered by new technology, sometimes simply by their imaginations - artists and designers alike are dramatically expanding the possibilities for furniture. When Attitudes Become Chairs, co-curated by Marc Benda and Glenn Adamson, focuses exclusively on cutting-edge chair forms, including works by Ron Arad, Wendell Castle, Shiro Kuramata and Gaetano Pesce; as well as Joris Laarman, whose high-tech and high-concept designs are shown in particular depth.
