An exhibition at the Gorcums Museum in the Netherlands celebrates its design history with more than 90 iconic chairs from the past 100 years. Van stoelen bezeten (Possessed by chairs) has been compiled by Frans Leidelmeijer. The Jacksons collection includes many original and rare classics, 18 of which are currently being exhibited at the Gorcums Museum, among them Scandinavian classics like Eero Aarnio´s famous Ball Chair from the 1960s, Hans J. Wegner´s Papa Bear armchair from the 1950s, and a rare bent birch armchair, designed by Alvar Aalto for the Paimio Sanatorium in 1932. On display are also international classics such as the MR 20, a tubular steel chair designed by Mies van der Rohe in 1927, and a wooden lounge chair created by Marcel Breuer in the 1930s. The oldest chair presented is Gustaf Fjaestad´s Stabbe Chair, sculptured by the artist in 1894 from the thickest part of an old pine tree. The exhibition is on view till March 29, 2015.
