Cesca Chair Model B32, Designed by Marcel Breuer in 1928
Chromium-plated steel, wood, cane. Another innovation in tubular steel. The cantilever support and use of modern industrial-looking materials were revolutionary at the time. Its lightness and modernity were enhanced by the textural and color contrast of the polished steel tubing, warm wooden frames and translucent cane of the back and seat. Versions of this chair are still in production.

The Wassily Chair, also known as the Model B3 chair, was designed by Marcel Breuer in 1925-26 while he was the head of the cabinet-making workshop at the Bauhaus, in Dessau, Germany. Revolutionary in it’s use of tubular steel, which was inspired by the same used in the manufacture of bicycles.
Named after seminal abstract painter Wassily Kandinsky, who admired Breuer’s designs.
