The exhibition "seat down" in London at the Childhood museum presents amazing pieces around 3 themes (What is a seat?, Who are seats for?, How are seats made?)
It classifies, compares, even incorporates everyday objects like pots and chairs dating from the seventeenth century to more modern pieces (stroller, car booster seat ...). It presents typologies of seat more than large pieces of design, although some are present, as the seat of Peter Murdoch Spotty, the highchair Rietveld, or Bertoia. The exhibition is fun and in the reach of children, particularly in the last part where they are invited to touch the materials, to assemble themselves a chair or to draw "their" own chair.
Thanks to the blog vintage for kid for the tip and the pictures
until september 2010
