Chair Collection of the Faculty of Architecture

The Faculty of Architecture at TU Delft has been collecting chairs for teaching purposes since 1957. The collection has evolved into one of the most important furniture collections in the Netherlands.

It is a source of knowledge about materials, construction and typologies for students and designers. In the past, the chairs were used as examples during lectures, and as models during drawing lessons. The permanent exhibition of the Chair Collection currently includes two Rietveld chairs (the other four can be seen in the Library Learning Centre). There are also chairs by designers.
