This program looks at chair design from two slightly different perspectives. One is presented by Julian Pratt, Co-ordinator Furniture Programs, RMIT University. His is a fairly standard 'by-the-book' kind of approach. The other commentators in the program are Chris Connell and Raoul Hogg, designers and co-directors of MAP. These practitioners take a more lateral, less academic approach to the question of design. Given their international reputation, their opinions provide a neat counterpoint to Julian Pratt. The program looks at all aspects of the design process from the brief through to the evaluation of the final product by the client.
