Closer Look: The Wassily Chair


“The artist works with the highest level of feeling.  The technician works with the highest level of logic”

Marcel Breuer perfectly executed his belief in his iconic furniture designs from the early years of the Bauhaus in Germany.  A prime example is his Wassily Chair he created after being inspired by the handlebars of his bicycle and using an innovative method of extruding tubular steel during an era when wooden frames were the norm.

The Wassily Chair Reproduction made at Modern Classics is crafted with polished stainless steel, seamlessly bent just as Breuer did in 1925.  Though the original chair only used black leather, we offer 18 different color options of genuine cowhide belting in top grain leather.  The simplicity and understated elegance of this chair allows it to fit in with almost any decor and in any room.

Which room would YOU put the Wassily Chair in your home?  Feel free to leave comments below!

Stop by either our Chicago or Seattle Showroom to take a seat and see why this chair has remained such an icon for almost a century!
