Cesca Chair

Designed By

Marcel Breuer, a Hungarian furniture designer, and architect designed the Cesca Chair in 1928. It was named after Breuer's daughter Francesca. The cantilevered chair incorporates a single chrome pipe frame with natural wood caning for the seat and backrest. It was the first steel chair with a tubular frame and caning put into mass production. It is so common because the design has never been patented and remains in the Public domain.
