Bill discusses a new exhibition at Auckland’s Objectspace gallery called ‘The Chair; a story of design and making in Aotearoa’.

'It showcases more then 110 New Zealand designed and made chairs spanning 170 years, all loaned by individuals and institutions. Bill hones in on three chairs in particular, and what they tell us about our attitude to design.
