In spirit and stature, Marcel Breuer’s Wassily Chair (1925) from Knoll has few equals. Believed to be the first bent tubular steel chair design, the Wassily Chair distills the traditional club chair to a series of strong, spare lines, executed with dynamic material counterpoint. The gleaming chrome-finished tubular steel frame inspired by the graceful, curving handlebars of the Adler bicycle is seamless in its assemblage. Thick cowhide leather, belting leather or canvas slings create the design’s seating surfaces, which maintain their crisp tautness for decades. Named for Wassily Kandinsky, the father of abstract painting and a colleague of Breuer’s at the Bauhaus, the Wassily Chair is a symbol of the industrial heroism and engineering invention of the early 20th century. Made in Italy. Each piece is stamped with the KnollStudio logo and the designer’s signature. The Wassily Chair is a registered trademark of Knoll, Inc., manufactured by Knoll according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer. Processed in the Santa Croce region of Italy, 100% vegetable-tanned, aniline-dyed Spinneybeck belting leather is smooth, with a tight-grain texture and rich saturated color; it has a light, protective, water-resistant finish.
