A revolutionary and versatile designer, Marcel Breuer completely transformed the concept of modern design. As a Bauhaus proponent, he explored the unique relationship between product and space, ultimately creating a functional and open living space. His tubular steel furniture has been a source of inspiration for many, playing a crucial role in the development of the modern movement.
As recognition for his achievements, Knoll created the Breuer series to honour the designer’s classics. This collection stays true to Breuer’s original project, showcasing iconic pieces like the streamlined Wassily chair, the Laccio low tables and the lightweight Cesca chair, which is available in a variety of versions.
Designed by Breuer in 1925 for Kandinsky's residence in Dessau, the Wassily chair has become an iconic piece of modern design. Drawing inspiration from a bicycle frame, this chair features a jointless chrome steel tubular structure and belting leather slings that support the seat, backrest and armrests. With a streamlined shape resulting from the deconstruction of a club chair, the Wassily chair is designed to provide a comfortable and ergonomic seating experience. It is available in several colours, including a gold frame option.
The distinctive feature of the eye-catching Cesca chair is its cantilever design, which ensures an unprecedented level of comfort and flexibility. With a variety of styles and colour options, the chair features Marcel Breuer's signature tubular steel as its frame. The original model is upholstered in Vienna straw, while the other versions come with fabric or leather upholstery.
The underlying idea was to create a piece of furniture that would blend form and function, with ergonomics being a key factor. For this reason, the Cesca chair is also perfectly suitable for offices and commercial settings. It is truly a classic that seamlessly combines traditional craftsmanship and industrial materials.
Knoll's collection of Marcel Breuer's classics includes the Laccio low tables, which elegantly combine sharp lines with a robust tubular steel reflecting the designer's style. The flowing, gentle curves of the frame blend in seamlessly with the minimalist geometry of the top, which has an MDF core and is available in plastic laminate or marble. The white, black, or red finishes echo Breuer's minimalist approach. Laccio is available in two sizes, with different heights and lenghts.
With its flowing, continuous frame, Marcel Breuer's MB Lounge chair features tubular steel and a slightly inclined soft, foam-padded cushion on metal springs for ergonomic support, while the natural oak armrests offer supreme comfort and stability. The MB Lounge chair is a statement piece that exudes sophisticated elegance and unique compositional simplicity.
