From October 20, 2010 the acclaimed 50 Years of Italian Chairs exhibition takes a seat in Sydney. Currently wowing crowds at Brisbane's QPAC, curator Alessandro Mendini, editor of Italian design magazine, DOMUS examines seating design from the second half of the 20th Century:
Mendini offers the chairs as small pieces of ‘architecture’ whose design has tested the mettle of renowned artists, architects and designers alike, all of whom have successfully married creativity and functional requirements, while addressing issues of materiality, manufacturing and technology.
Coming to Sydney as an extension of Sydney's Art & About month, the exhibit is free and open daily. When: 20-29 October Hours: Showroom hours Venue: Euroluce Showroom, 2 Hill St, Surry Hills, NSW 2010 Cost: Free
