Wassily Chair

Designed By

Marcel Breuer, a Hungarian furniture designer, and architect designed the Wassily Chair in 1925 when he was a faculty member at the Bauhaus. Breuer was inspired by the construction of bicycles and used tubular steel as the frame of his design. The seat, back, and arms are attached to the structure, giving the user the illusion that they are floating. The chair was created with canvas and is currently being reproduced using many other types of fabric.
