Historical Design: the top list of iconic seats

|

Over the years historical design has given us a series of pieces that I consider to be of extraordinary beauty. These are some extremely original products, which I think are near perfection. These products bear the signature of some truly great and sacred heroes of design.  We are speaking about high caliber professionals like van der Rohe, Breuer and Le Corbusier, not to mention the spouses Charles & Ray Eames. In the article I want to focus on a particular type of product, to show you what I consider my favorite seats, chosen from those that have made history in design. As you will see they are truly refined and special pieces. They cannot fail to impress with their elegance: extraordinary!

But now enough of words, let the pictures do the talking.

Let’s start.
