Description:
 

Breuer steel and leather design objects are probably the most representative of Bauhaus functionalist principles. Wassilly chair, an excellent and everlasting piece of design, is one of the first completed and successful experiment of modern industrial design.

While Marcel Breuer's tubular steel chairs were a daring departure from traditional wood furniture, this "radical" idea was sparked by Breuer's familiar bicycle handlebars. "Mass production," he 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."
      Drawing upon this image of "shiny and impeccable lines in space" Breuer designed his famous Wassilly chair, for Wassilly Kandinsky while both were in residence at the Bauhaus. Breuer subsequently designed a range of tubular metal furniture that had singular advantages--affordability, hygiene and an inherent resilience. Breuer considered his designs essential for modern living. info source: www.inter-classics.com
