More than any other piece of furniture, the chair is the iconic design symbol of Western society. From works by Gustav Stickley to Gerrit Rietveld, from Frank Lloyd Wright and Charles and Ray Eames to Philippe Starck, no other design creation better expresses our ever-changing mood.

With examples from Room & Board’s collection, art historian Rolf Achilles -- curator of the Smith Museum of Stained Glass Windows at Navy Pier and professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago -- surveys the past 200 years and shows how the chairs of Frank Lloyd Wright are as much a product of their time as they are now iconic. Q & A and reception to follow. No tickets required; admission is free and open to the public.
