This poster gathers the complete series of Bruno Munari’s photos for “Seeking comfort in an uncomfortable chair”, published on the issue no. 202 of the magazine “Domus” in 1944.

The 14 snaps are a consideration on “giving up” comfort in favor of a unique and fashionable look when designing objects. In this specific case, the object is a chair that, instead of being a comfy spot where one can wind down at the end of the day, forces us to explore new, not-so-relaxing postures!

Bruno Munari (1907-1998) was one of the protagonists of 20th-century art, design and graphics in Italy.
Since his very first experiences in the 30s among the artists of the Second Futurism, he always dedicated his creative activity to every form of “experimentation”, in the fields of painting, sculpture, design, photography and didactics. As a part of his eclectic work as an artist-designer, he always paid special attention to the world of children. Never separating content from form and materials, what he designed were at once books, book-objects and games that make us think.

Bruno Munari took a personal interest in the activities of the Corraini art gallery and publishing house for over twenty years, so it is hardly surprising that his books occupy a special place in our catalogue; he also redesigned the Edizioni Corraini logo, inspired by a previous drawing by Roman artist Giosetta Fioroni.
