A seat of high learning for NCSU
Custom-designed chairs grace the newly dedicated Hunt Library
by Renee Elder
“In choosing furniture for the signature reading room of the new James B. Hunt Jr. Library, N.C. State University staff wanted to bridge the gap between tradition and technology.
The result is the Hunt chair, a fresh design by an established furniture maker that has roots as deep as the Bank of England and a spirit that evokes the new library’s playfully contemporary form.
“The library is so modern – it really speaks to the future,” said Aaron Moser, of the Thos. Moser furniture company, as he toured the $115 million Hunt Library prior to its dedication Wednesday. “Yet we didn’t want to let go of all the precedents that got us here.”
