More info
This collection, initiated in the 1990s, is full of original seating designs and its owner, Thierry Barbier-Mueller, has taken the step of presenting it to the public after more than 20 years of confidential passion.

The variations and tempos have captivated Thierry Barbier-Mueller’s attention for this evident and necessary functional object. Faced with such a rich and diversified corpus, and in order to give each chair its own specificity, famous American director Robert Wilson was asked to design immersive and exceptional scenography, borrowed from the repertoire of performing arts. Through him, the mudac exhibition reads like an immense opera in several scenes. The mudac thus gets to offer a brand-new piece of theatre with its first major exhibition on its 1500 m2 stage, in the heart of the Plateforme 10 arts district.

“A Chair and You” presents this object in four acts in scenic situations that reveal the history of design from the 1960s to the present day.
