Wassily Chair

Named after Wassily Kandinsky, who admired Marcel Breuer’s prototype, the Wassily Chair was brazenly modern from its inception in 1925 to the present. Conceived at the Bauhaus and inspired by Breuer’s bicycle, the chair is iconic as the first ever built from a single piece of seamless tubular steel: no welds, instead constructed using plumbers’ techniques. It embodies the driving Bauhaus objective—to reconcile art and industry. The chair is fitting in many environments, from modernist décor, with its minimalist lines and surfaces, to the maximalist sets of such 1980s-themed shows as Light the Night.
