Bodleian Libraries launches chair design competition

The Bodleian Libraries are launching this week a chair design competition that invites a designer/manufacturer team to create a new reading room chair for the institution's Weston Library. The competition is officially launched at 100% Design, the UK's leading contemporary design event. A curated space will reflect the library's 400 year design heritage and reiterate its furniture commissioning history alongside imagery of Wilkinson Eyre's vision for this cultural and intellectual landmark. The installation will include a replica of the original Bodleian chair - the 'Curators’ Chair' commissioned in 1756 - alongside pieces designed by Gilbert Scott in 1936
