“When I first visited this exhibition, I looked at the elm chair and, based on a visual assessment, quickly jumped to the conclusion that this must be a stiff and extremely uncomfortable chair. The vast expanse of wood and the geometry of the planes seemed unwieldy and unforgiving. However, upon sitting down in it I found much to my surprise that it was extremely comfortable. The angle of the back provided perfect support, and the soft oiled finish imparted not just a smooth burnished surface but an upholstered effect. Even without a seat cushion the elm chair was as comfortable a chair as any I had sat in.”
