The leading figure of the Modernist Movement, Hungarian architect and furniture designer Marcel Breuer is known for his devotion to simplicity of form and modular construction. His Wassily chair made in 1925, is a dedication to his colleague at Bauhaus, Wassily Kandinksy who revolutionized art with his abstract painting, is a study in the artistic philosophy of Breuer himself. Inspired by a folding chair used by the British army officers deployed in India in the mid-nineteenth, the Wassily chair has received acclaim throughout decades for its simple design that does not belie functionality. This high-quality version of the Wassily Chair is made from a chrome plated steel frame with bonded leather strings. Available in black, dark brown and white, the magnificent chair retails for £179.
