"Wassily" Chair - Replica made in Italy c. 1980

600.00

We have two of these chairs in excellent condition. Whilst replicas of the 1925 original, these Italian made versions produced in the eighties are made from high quality leather and have no cracking to the leather or discolouration of the chrome.

The original designer, Marcel Breuer was born in Austria-Hungary and left home at the age of 18 to study design. Breuer was one of the first students of Walter Gropius’s Bauhaus, an arts and design school then based in Weimar, Germany. He later followed Gropius to Harvard and continued to study under him, which further shaped his design language and aesthetic.

Wassily Chair: Breuer first designed the Wassily chair while at the Bauhaus in 1925. The design has been in continuous production since then. It was originally inspired by the frame of a bicycle, and is constructed from seamless tubular steel
