This major publication, celebrating the Lounge Chair's fiftieth anniversary, explores the design in detail and places it in its cultural, historical and social contexts, offering fresh insights into this revered icon and its equally revered creators. - Amazon Authors Martin Eidelberg is professor emeritus of art history at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey.
