The chair: between craftsmanship and design

Since the dawn of time, craftsmen have indulged in designing chairs for the most varied uses. If in the most ancient times chairs were a prerogative reserved for men of power and the aristocratic classes, from the 16th century onwards the chair experienced a rather rapid evolution, soon becoming a widely used piece of furniture, simple or complex, made with one or multiple materials, sometimes finely decorated, always stimulating the creativity of its creator.
