The Chair: A story of design and making in Aotearoa

Curated by Kim Paton
Objectspace, Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland

Designed by Inhouse, The Chair book features new writing on the 110 chairs included in the exhibition and photography taken across the country: together telling a story of design and making in Aotearoa.

Twenty-six writers have worked to bring each chair to life with descriptions, histories, and occasionally their chair opinions; thank you for your words, Mike Barrett, Zoe Black, Pete Bossley, Graeme Burgess, Andrew Clark, Hamish Coney, William Cottrell, Dan and Emma Eagle, Peter Herbert, Zoe Ikin, Paul Jenkin, Bronwyn Lloyd, Victoria McAdam, Bill Mckay, Jamie McLellan, Francis McWhannell, Anna Miles, Mark Pennington, Antony Phillips, Damian Skinner, Rigel Sorzano, Linda Tyler, John Walsh, Rick Wells and Carin Wilson.

Photographers Sam Hartnett, David Straight, Alan Knowles, Nick Beadle, Tom Teutenberg, Sarah Rowlands and Cheska Brown were commissioned to document chairs, visiting homes, workplaces and studios throughout the country. Their great documentation of the chairs enables them to be remembered long after the life of the exhibition, through this publication.
