Year 6 Take a Seat

Year 6 have been looking at the history of chairs and how their style has changed over the centuries. We looked at the work of British Nigerian designer Yinki Ilori and how his heritage informs his design both in terms of colour and pattern choice. He talks of chairs having a narrative – telling a story. In the light of this we looked at Van Gogh’s famous painting of his chair and the sad story surrounding it. The children then designed and made their own chairs.
