The Knoll Cesca Armchair - originally known as the B32 Chair - was designed in 1928 by Marcel Breuer. This was a revolutionary chair of its time, executed using a chromed tubular steel cantilevered base onto which the caned seat and back are mounted. It's a chair which, although familiar, pushed the boundary in design realisation yet still resonates today as much as it did then. Ubiquitous in its heyday - over 250,000 were sold - it's a chair which had found a new popularity to a modern audience once again.

This version of the chair comes with arms with a seat and back with either a natural beech or black ebonized stain finish.

Marcel Breuer

Marcel Breuer was the protégé of Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius and his entire body of work, both architecture and furniture, embodies the driving Bauhaus objective to reconcile art and industry. Inspired by bicycle construction, fabricated using the techniques of local plumbers, Breuer's first designs, including the Wassily Lounge Chair, remain among the most identifiable icons of the modern furniture movement. He was an early mentor to Florence Knoll during her time in the office of Walter Gropius and was subsequently an influential figure in Knoll's history.
