WASSILY CHAIR | PLATINUM REPLICA
This is platinum quality replica of the ground-breaking Wassily Chair designed by Marcel Breuer in 1925. Originally named the ‘B3 Chair’ (presumably mimicking the looping shape of the characters), it was inspired by the use of tubular steel in the bicycle and Breuer’s subsequent application of this material and technique to furniture revolutionised modern design and production, in a manner exemplary of the Bauhaus’ manifesto of ‘Form + Function’. Subsequently named after his friend Wassily Kandinsky (who adored the chair and was given the prototype), this design has pride of place in the 20th Century Avant-Garde movements. It is truly a chair of significance.
This highly accurate reproduction is handmade by skilled craftspeople from the finest materials including pre-stressed premium grade Stainless Steel and is upholstered in a choice 100% of full-grain Italian Aniline Leather
