Additional Information

Description

In spirit and stature, Marcel Breuer's Wassily Chair (1925) from Knoll has few equals. Believed to be the first bent tubular steel chair design, the Wassily Chair distills the traditional club chair to a series of strong, spare lines, executed with dynamic material counterpoint. The gleaming chrome-finished tubular steel frame – inspired by the graceful, curving handlebars of the Adler bicycle – is seamless in its assemblage. Thick cowhide leather, belting leather or canvas slings create the design's seating surfaces, which maintain their crisp tautness for decades. Named for Wassily Kandinsky, the father of abstract painting and a colleague of Breuer's at the Bauhaus, the Wassily Chair is a symbol of the industrial heroism and engineering invention of the early 20th century. Made in Italy.

  • Each piece is stamped with the KnollStudio logo and the designer's signature. The Wassily Chair is a registered trademark of Knoll, Inc., manufactured by Knoll according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer.
  • Processed in the Santa Croce region of Italy, 100% vegetable-tanned, aniline-dyed Spinneybeck® belting leather is smooth, with a tight-grain texture and rich saturated color; it has a light, protective, water-resistant finish.

HUNGARY (1902–1981)

Sparked by bicycle handlebars, Marcel Breuer’s tubular steel chairs were a daring departure from traditional wood furniture. “Mass production,” Breuer said, “made me interested in polished metal, in shiny and impeccable lines in space, as new components of our interiors. I considered such polished and curved lines not only symbolic of our modern technology but actually to be technology.”
