cesca chair with cane seat and back
Design Marcel Breuer, 1928
Chromed tubular steel, hand-woven cane
Marcel Breuer conceived the first tubular steel chair, in 1925, based on the tubed frame of a bicycle. His revolutionary Cesca chair, named after his daughter Francesca, marries user-friendly caning and hardwood Beech with the industrial-age aesthetic of cantilevered tubular steel. Functional, simple and distinctly modern. Knoll is the only authorized and licensed manufacturer of the Cesca chair. Marcel Breuer's signature and Knoll studio logo are stamped into the base of each chair to verify authenticity.
Protégé of Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer embodied many of the School's distinctive concepts and was and one of the School's most famous students. He returned to teach carpentry from 1925-1928, during which he designed the tubular-steel furniture collection. His attention drifted towards architecture, and after practicing privately, he worked as a professor at Harvard's School of Design under Gropius. Breuer was also honored as the first architect to be the sole artist of an exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
