The Future of the Chair

In a World when “sitting is the new smoking” what is the future of the humble and not so humble chair? To understand the future sometimes you must look to the past. Join Alex Richie, Creative Director of e-2 and Alan Boyd “chair maven” on a fun, entertaining and educational journey through the history of design and a vision of the future!

He moved to “down under” and has been involved at a senior level of two of the most famous chair companies and brands in the World; Herman Miller and Thonet.
