The Swiss Institute kicks off its annual design series with Fin de Siècle curated by Andreas Angelidakis. This eclectic collection of chairs from the late twentieth century pays homage to Eugène Ionesco’s aburdist, minimalist, avant-garde play The Chairs, first performed in 1952. The exhibition is on display until November 23, 2014 and features pieces by some of kM's favorite mid-century designers, including Marcel Breuer, Le Corbusier, Charlotte Perriand, and Gaetano Pesci.
The Swiss Institute is located at 18 Wooster Street (between Canal and Grand) in New York City. The gallery is open to the public free of charge from 12-6pm Wednesday to Sunday.
