Marcel Breuer: The Man of Tubular Steel


Marcel Breuer, a celebrated architect of the Bauhaus movement in Dessau, Germany, created the easily recognizable and historic Wassily Chair. This chair is named to pay homage to Breuer’s friend and colleague at the Bauhaus, Vasily Kandinsky.

The design of the Wassily Chair came at a time when Breuer was experimenting with extruded steel and, inspired by the metal frame on his bicycle, he was able to create a fluid steel tubular frame, unlike any other chair. The leather seating is designed in such a way that the human body does not touch the steel frame. Check out how the Modern Classics 
Wassily Chair replica compares to other reproductions in quality and comfort.

Come take a seat in our Wassily Chair replica in our 
Chicago or Seattle showroom!
