Robert Venturi for Knoll Postmodern Chippendale Bent Plywood Lounge Chair 1984. A leader and drum beater for the Postmodern movement, Robert Venturi designed a collection of furniture alongside his partner in design and life, Denise Scott Brown, for Knoll in 1984. The Venturi Collection epitomized both architect’s cerebral, pioneering writings that defined the next wave of Modernism that Venturi and Scott Brown themselves led. Working with Knoll Design Director Jeffrey Osborne, the architect's series of tables and chairs were a contradiction of classical form – an abstraction of historic furniture styles intended to be representational rather than literal.
