In the 20th century, modernism dominated aesthetic interests. In addition to fine art and everyday architecture, the modernist movement also transformed interior design, with furniture at the forefront. While most home furnishings received modern makeovers, it was the humble chair that had the most avant-garde transformation. From the 1920s through the 1960s, a selection of the world's top designers and architects turned their attention toward seating. Inspired by modern art and aiming for affordability, many of them experimented with new materials and forms that could be easily mass produced. This innovative approach to product design culminated in a collection of chairs fit for cozy and contemporary homes and modern art museums alike.
