Chairs: we sit in them all day, but how often do we stop to admire them? In the Swiss Institute’s inaugural edition of its design series, architect Andreas Angelidakis curates a selection of 20th-century chairs. Arranged in a theatrical display, complete with low-tech lighting effects, wooden crates, and other stylistic props, the chairs—which include highlights by Marcel Breuer, Pierre Jeanneret, and Gaetano Pesce—are given an otherworldly, anthropomorphic energy.
