More than any other piece of furniture the chair has been subject to the wildest experimentations and ideas by makers, crafters, engineers and designers. The most used piece of furniture, it is lauded for its honest functionality and celebrated for its many shapes and forms.

The chair is an ever-evolving indicator of trend, design, and application of material and technology. Obsessed over by creative practitioners, it is one of the ultimate design challenges.

If the home is our castle, then the chair is our throne.

'The Chair' exhibition is the first in a series presented by Craft Victoria honouring iconic objects of functional craft and design.
