Art & Design

As one of the youngest students to attend the newly established Bauhaus school of design at age 19, Marcel Breuer-hungarian architect and furniture designer is best known for using tubular steel bending technology as a structural frame to support his iconic chair designs (Wassily) originally inspired by bicycle frames. The chair became an instant success leading Breuer to teach at the school and subsequently developed his own architectural firm in Berlin. Although Breuer spear-headed many projects, he often collaborated with other designers. Major commissions include the Whitney Museum in New York and UNESCO in Paris.
