Why is the humble chair a perennial favorite of designers? Because chairs can say something important about the culture and society they are part of, as well as the individual that chooses to sit in them. Many of the greatest designers have agreed that chair design is a formidable challenge. Arthur Harsuvanakit, senior designer at Autodesk, tells the story of the newest creation from master designer Philippe Starck—a chair created in collaboration with a new tool, artificial intelligence.
