ProtÃ©gÃ© 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. His attention drifted towards architecture, and after practicing privately, he worked as a professor at Harvards School of Design under Gropius. Breuer was also honored as the first architect to be the sole artist of an exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Wassily Chair was named after his Bauhaus roommate Wassily Kandinsky, the Cesca after his daughter Francesca.
