5,000 Years of Chairs in 5 Minutes

Great video on NY times’ Post-Materialist column showcasing “5,000 Years of Chairs in 5 Minutes”

A report from our Berlin correspondent on design and society.
The more you love design, the more you enjoy seeing things a bit worn, battered and imperfect. The greater your obsession with seating, for example, the more you’ll notice it — chairs out there in the world, a bit tattered and torn, weird one-offs, big green sofas shaped like mountain ranges, piano stools without pianos, junked stools salvaged from the trash and painted pink.
