A small look at design history

The other day I got a chance to check in on a v. cool small exhibit that's recently shown up in Toronto. Dimensions Of Design - 100 Classical Seats features perfectly scaled Vitra Design Museum miniatures that range from the 19th Century Windsor Chair at #1 all the way to the 1991 Philippe Stark designed Louis 20 at #100, and is a fascinitaing glimpse into the history of design, not to mention the vagaries of fashion and taste. The exhibition, which runs until March 9th, is housed in a pared back industrial gallery space in the Consulate General of Germany on the 25th floor of 2 Bloor St. East and has, as an added bonus, incredible views of the city that'll definitely make you want to get snap happy. Click here for deets, and check, check, check it out. Oh, and yes, if this exhibit turns you into a raging miniature chair-a-holic fear not, since you can buy them direct from Vitra here or, if you're in the city, pop in to Plan B for a quick fix.
