Was hat 4 Beine und 2 Arme?
Bentwood! How does it work, what is it, and why does it look so good? Come with us to Chairville and pick your favorite chair. We discuss why a chair does not always have to be comfortable and how seating has changed over time. After the tour, you can make your own model and show what you can do. Workshop for the whole family (ages 4+) in context of the exhibition BENTWOOD AND BEYOND.
