Commemorative Centennial Chairs

In 2014, chapters are celebrating AIGA’s Centennial with hundreds of social, educational and professional events. One activity centers around a timeless design icon: the chair. Inspired by the fact that AIGA’s earliest members purchased their own Windsor-style chairs for meetings and events, AIGA chapters were invited to customize Real Good chairs from Minneapolis-based Blu Dot. The resulting designs represent the creative diversity of our wide-reaching community. The Centennial Commemorative Chairs made their debut in the exhibition “Facing Forward: AIGA at 100” at the AIGA National Design Center in New York City before being distributed to their originating chapters.
