The Knoll Wassily Lounge Chair (originally known as the B3 Chair) by Marcel Breuer was designed in 1925 for Wassily Kandinsky's quarters at the Dessau Bauhaus.
This chair totally transformed traditional chair design - the heavy upholstery of a comfortable armchair was replaced by planes of tightly stretched leather and the frame introduced a revolutionary use of tubular steel which was to be adopted by other designers as a symbol of modernity for many years to come.
Considered a design classic this is the original chair, manufactured by Knoll, and comes available black, light brown and white beige cowhide as well as natural canvas and a choice of Haired Hides in various colours.
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.
