A Rare 1996 Vitra Catalog Featuring 100 Most Important Chairs From Its Collection

In the Summer of 1996, Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein (Germany) set up an ambitious exhibition that presented 100 of the most important chairs and seating furniture from the museum’s collection. Together with the exhibition, Vitra released a beautiful and comprehensive catalog of the exhibited pieces with each spread featuring a large photo of the piece and a visual back story behind it.
