“Power is all about the chair. To exercise power you need a chair. You can keep it, give it up, or take one from someone else. Chairs are always working. The ultimate sign of power is to rarely sit in your chair. Real power is the ability to organize the chairs of others.”
“Architects seek a connection to power by designing polemical chairs and trying to look relaxed in them. An architect without a chair is naïve, modest, or a genius.”
