The original famous Wassily chair designed by Marcel Breuer.
The chair was produced by the Gavina company in the 1960s, which was later acquired by Knoll along with the rights to produce the chair.
Currently, this model is no longer produced in the original version, which featured a thick Canvas fabric.
The Wassily Chair is an iconic piece of furniture designed by Marcel Breuer in 1925-1926. It is renowned for its innovative use of materials and sleek, modernist design. Originally known as the Model B3 chair, it was later nicknamed the Wassily Chair in honor of Wassily Kandinsky, the famous Russian painter and a colleague of Breuer at the Bauhaus school.
The chair's frame is made from tubular steel, which was a groundbreaking material choice at the time of its creation. Breuer was inspired by the lightweight, curved forms of bicycle handlebars, and he applied the same principles to create this chair's unique silhouette. The design includes a cantilevered seat and backrest, creating an airy and visually striking composition.
Originally, the Wassily Chair was upholstered with thick canvas fabric like this one we offer, which added to its industrial and avant-garde appearance. Over the years, different variations of upholstery materials have been used, including leather and other fabrics, allowing for versatile customization options.
The Wassily Chair became an iconic symbol of modern furniture design and continues to be sought after by design enthusiasts and collectors around the world. Its timeless appeal and influential design have solidified its place in the history of furniture design, making it a true masterpiece of 20th-century design.
