Wassily Chair

Marcel Breuer for Knoll - 1925

Marcel Breuer was an apprentice at the Bauhaus in 1925 when he conceived what is believed to be the first tubular steel chair. Inspired by the construction of a bicycle frame, Breuer reduced the form of the classic club chair to its elemental lines and planes. Named after his colleague, the abstract painter Wassily Kandinsky, it is a symbol of early 20th century industrial and engineering innovation. Marcel Breuer’s signature and the Knoll logo are stamped into the base of the frame.
