Breuer Wassily chair is really legendary. It was designed when Marcel Breuer was 23 years old and was deeply under the influence of constructivism. In 1925, he showed an innovative approach in the field of furniture design and began designing furniture pieces using steel tubes. The seat was initially named “B3 “ and after that was given the name “ Wassily Chair”, in honor of the Russian artist and founder of abstract art Wassily Kandinsky. When the piece went into production in America, the name was preserved. The public received the new design with a great enthusiasm and it quickly became tremendously popular. Even Breuer did not expect such an instant success and even nowadays has thousands of copies and prototypes.
