week 06 : the first millennium ends, the modern world map unfolds: we see more enlightened places + people than previous notions of the “dark ages.”
week 07 : making rules to break with gothic ideas and re-link to the ancients of the western world : observing continuities with the past in the east.
week 08 : as western rules made + written, designers work across genre + scale to bend + break them; eastern designers maintain a continuous approach.
week 09 : colonial expansion brings ideas + people around the world. in these encounters, emulation and maintaining difference both become important.
week 10 : architecture and design obscure significant political, social, and cultural change brought by revolution and invention throughout the world.
|The poster advertising the 1939 world fair was looking towards the future and the possibilities rather than past inventions.|

The wing chair is a chair that was a symbol of status, especially in the late 17th century in Great Britain. They were reserved for only the highest levels of aristocracy. The designs for the first few centuries boxy and in current day the designs of them have become more feminine and sleek. The wing chair also creates emotional security, which in design is extremely suspect. Moreover, refinement and advancement considers itself to be obliged towards rational intellect. The more modern counter part of the wing chair is expressed most notably in other more modern designers advancements of the wing back chair. For example, my object featured is the Victoria Hagan Wainscot Wing Chair (2009). The wing chair however, in my opinion all began with the design of the sultan’s chair from Egyptian culture. And then transpired into later cultures especially in the area in and around Great Britain.

plastic animals to be your caller.
Each layer it beams
a different value it seems.
Won't stop till you pay a dollar.
