The chair, based on a 1920’s design by Marcel Breuer, has a tubular-steel frame and a caned seat and back. It was the first such chair mass-produced, starting in 1928. “It’s among the 10 most important chairs of the 20th century,” said Cara McCarty, associate curator, department of architecture and design at the Museum of Modern Art. An original 1928 chair is in the Museum of Modern Art.
How to Use It
As a dining chair
The dining room is an obvious choice for the Cesca chair as it comes with and without arms. The mix of steel, cane and beech means that it is easily at home in a variety of styles.
Here it is in a modern room where the ebonised frame is in harmony with the black frames and images of the artwork on the walls.
In this more traditional home, it’s matched with a timber and metal table, adding weight and solidity to the room’s scheme.
nd in this eclectic dining room, the cane and steel contribute to the textured palette of the room. These Cesca chairs have an ebonised beech frame and armrests, with dark woven cane. They sit opposite a banquette and anchor the otherwise light and bright room. The mix of materials also means the chair can be mixed and matched with other dining chairs that pick up on the cane, beech or metal. s an office chair
With its supportive give, the Cesca also serves well as an office chair. AP Design House used the chair in this elegant Mosman home, matching it with an antique writing desk and a cantilevered side table.
