Details

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 after his daughter Francesca, the simple design combines the Industrial Age aesthetic of tubular steel with upholstery or caning and wood. Stamped with the KnollStudio logo and Breuer’s signature, Cesca is manufactured by Knoll® according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer.

Marcel Breuer

Sparked by bicycle handlebars, Marcel Breuer’s tubular steel chairs were a daring departure from traditional wood furniture and major icons of the International Style in early 20th Century. “Mass production,” Breuer said, “made me interested in polished metal, in shiny and impeccable lines in space, as new components of our interiors.”
