Wassily Chair

Wassily Chair was designed by Marcel Breuer in 1925 during the time when he was the head of the cabinet-making workshop at the Bauhaus. Initially named Model B3, later renamed to Wassily Chair. Inspired by the Breuer’s 'Adler' bicycle handlebars, Wassily chair frame is seamless tubular steel with a polished chrome finish. In the early iterations the straps were made of fabric and was available in folding and non-folding versions. Since 1968 Knoll is the only authorized and licensed manufacturer of the Wassily chair. Each authentic chair has Marcel Breuer’s signature stamped into the base of the frame and each chair has an individual identification number. Since the patent designs are expired reproductions are produced by other manufacturers, who market the chair under different names. Starting at: $2425
