Curatorial Statement
Throughout history, designers and architects have reflected around the idea of seating and the many shapes and purposes it can bear. After all, whether Egyptian, gothic or contemporary, they are all the same; they are all an invitation to have a seat, a conversation, they are all small sculptures. And in a way, this makes them all comparable.

Each one of them tells you something about the person who created it, the era it was created in, and the society that shaped it.
Like an immersion in the history of modern architecture, it’s like looking at buildings from a very close point of view.

The opening will be preceded by a round table discussion moderated by Anne France Berthelon and Marco Constantini starting at 5:00 PM with Bernard Khoury, Carla Baz, Carlo Massoud, Exil Collective, and Karen Chekerdjian.
