Bauhaus designer Marcel Breuer was a German-American architect. After completing his apprenticeship as a carpenter at the Weimar Bauhaus, Breuer worked for several years in the office of Walter Gropius. After his emigration to the USA, he established the influential School of Architecture at Harvard University with Walter Gropius.
In addition to the Wassily Chair of Marcel Breuer most famous are Cesca cantilever* and tables from the Laccio Table Set*.
Even with and by Marcel Breuer the Bauhaus movement became one of the most influential design language of "modernity" in architecture and in the design of furniture classics.
Many designers appear the most complicated section of arts and crafts to be the chair. In 1914 writer Paul Scheerbart complaint about the impossibility of aesthetic appeal of chairs made of steel. But only one decade later cantilever chairs turned into spectacular objects of modern design. Because of the technical impression of the cantilever, which acts at the same time cool, elegant and clear, it went to symbol of "modernity."
