Protege of Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer embodied many of the Schools distinctive concepts and was and one of the Schools most famous students. He returned shortly thereafter to teach carpentry from 1925 to 1928, and during this time designed his tubular-steel furniture collection: functional, simple and distinctly modern. Wherever you place them, the chairs featured in the Marcel Breuer Collection are sure to please. Every chair designed by Breuer is distinct and combines form with function. The Wassily Chair by Knoll was named after his Bauhaus roommate Wassily Kandinsky. And Knolls Cesca Chair is named after Breuers daughter Francesca.
