Widely considered one of the most popular and influential architects and furniture designers of the 20th century, Hungarian-born Marcel Breuer was one of the Bauhaus’ first students. Studying alongside and under Wassily Kandinsky, Walter Gropius, Paul Klee and Josef Albers, Breuer went on to become an icon of the modernist movement.
A pioneering architect renowned for his use of steel, glass and concrete, Marcel Breuer is often identified as a key figure in the emergence of Brutalism. Designing iconic buildings such as the St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church in Muskegon, the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, Breuer collaborated with many renowned architects, including Bernard Zehrfuss, Pier Luigi Nervi and Walter Gropius.
An iconic designer as well as a talented architect, Marcel Breuer’s creations include the Wassily Chair, the tubular B117 Table and the cantilevered Cesca Chair. Inspired by traditional bicycle handlebars and innovatively crafted using the same techniques as local plumbers, many of Marcel Breuer’s designs feature his iconic tubular steel frame. Renowned across the world for their innovative materials and ground breaking forms, Breuer’s creations are housed in permanent collections in some of the world’s most prestigious museums.
Originally known as the B2 Chair, the natural canvas Wassily Lounge Chair was designed when Marcel Breuer was an apprentice at the Bauhaus in 1925.
Named after Breuer’s contemporary Wassily Kandinsky, the Wassily Lounge Chair’s tubular frame was inspired by that of a bicycle. With a polished chrome finish and natural canvas upholstery, this award-winning chair has truly earnt its place in the design hall of fame.
Crafted to Marcel Breuer’s exact specifications by Knoll, the Wassily Lounge Chair is considered a design classic that would lend a touch of style to any space.
