moreInspired by the frame of a bicycle, Marcel Breuer was an apprentice at the Bauhaus when he reduced the classic club chair to its elemental lines and planes and changed the world of furniture forever.
Frame is seamless tubular steel with a polished chrome finish. Four plastic glides snap into pre-drilled holes on base of the chair. The Knoll Studio logo and signature of Marcel Breuer are stamped into the base of the chair.
This chair is in perfect shape. No scratches to the leather or metal and no stretching of the leather. New the chair goes for $2425 but it can be yours for less than 1/2 that price.
The Wassily Chair, also known as the Model B3 chair, was designed by Marcel Breuer in 1925-1926 while he was the head of the cabinet-making workshop at the Bauhaus, in Dessau, Germany. Despite popular belief, the chair was not designed for the non-objective painter Wassily Kandinsky, who was concurrently on the Bauhaus faculty. However, Kandinsky had admired the completed design, and Breuer fabricated a duplicate for Kandinsky's personal quarters. The chair became known as "Wassily" decades later, when it was re-released by an Italian manufacturer named Gavina who had learned of the anecdotal Kandinsky connection in the course of his research on the chair's origins. less
