Description

Three years after designing his iconic Wassily Chair, which is believed to be the first bent tubular steel chair design, Marcel Breuer created the Cesca Chair (1928). Named in tribute to his daughter Francesca, the simple design pairs the industrial age aesthetic of tubular steel with leather upholstery. This chair is stamped with the KnollStudio logo and Breuer’s signature. Cesca chairs are manufactured by Knoll® according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer. Made in USA.

  • The Cesca is used in homes and restaurants worldwide, and an original 1928 chair is included in MoMA’s permanent collection.
  • “It’s among the 10 most important chairs of the 20th century,” said Cara McCarty, associate curator, department of architecture and design at MoMA.
