Marcel Breuer usually rode a bicycle to Bauhaus, a former German school of design, where he was a professor. His simple commute led him to perhaps the most groundbreaking breakthrough in furniture design in the 20th century - the use of tubular steel. According to Breuer, if the steel can be bent into handlebars, then it can be bent into furniture forms.
This chair can be best described as an outline of a traditional club chair. The use of tubular steel enables the canvas seat, back and arms to appear as if it's floating in air.
The chair was dubbed the "Wassily" after the painter Kandinsky, Breuer's friend and fellow Bauhaus instructor, who praised the design when it was first produced. This chair is also known as the Model B3 chair.
This chair is a replica of Bruer's classic Wassily chair and not to be confused with the original.
