Wassily® Chair in Belting Leather

Design Within Reach

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. Named for Wassily Kandinsky, the father of abstract painting and a > MORE 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. Manufactured by Knoll according to the original specifications of the designer. Greenguard Certified. Made in Italy. -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. -Each piece is stamped with the KnollStudio logo and the designer's signature. ^ LESS
