The chair’s utility, its fundamental importance in everyday life, has made it a productive site for experimentation, producing some of the most iconic examples of Mexican design. In this volume, design curator Anna Elena Mallet explores the chair in Mexican cultural and design history. Organized chronologically as an illustrated timeline, Silla Mexicana presents a history of the chair from folk art to colonial-period manufacturing, culminating in the creations of contemporary architects and designers. Designers surveyed include Gaston Chaussat, William Spratling, Michael van Beuren, Eleuterio Cortés and Luis Barragán, Ezekiel Farca, Jorge Moreno, Bernardo Gómez-Pimienta, Anne Monique Renee Midy, and many more.
