From the introduction:

The Vitra collection consists of more than 1800 pieces of furniture of which the vast majority are chairs....[M]ost dates from 1925 and after, and virtually all of the piecse made before the 1970s can be characterized as in the Modernist tradition or part of what is seen as that style's prehistory. Although it is said that only furniture intended for mass production is collected, that policy is not strictly adhered to...."     [Book ID # 1700]
