Knoll Wassily Chair

The Wassily Chair by Knoll was originally conceived by designer Marcel Breuer with the frame of a bicycle in mind. This uniquely modern chair was designed in 1925 and heavily influenced by the constructivist theories of the De Stijl movement. One of the primary goals Marcel had in mind when crafting the chair was weld-free construction, allowing chrome plating to envelop every bend in the steel tubing.

Once the first chair was finished, Wassily Kandinsky happened to visit Marcel's studio and saw it. In just a year's time, Marcel had furnished the entire Bauhaus with his furniture. Today, the chair is widely credited with changing the course of modern furniture design forever.

For those wanting to add a minimalist aesthetic to their office space, Wassily Chairs are perfect. With industrial design roots, this modern take on the classic club chair offers a look that's clean and colorful. As one of the staples of the Breuer Collection by Knoll, this chair is sure to elevate whatever interior it serves.

Modernism Meets Craftsmanship

Marcel Breuer was still just an apprentice at the Bauhaus when he first conjured the elemental lines and planes of the Wassily Chair. At only 23 years old, Marcel had recently bought his first bicycle.

Talking to an architect friend one day, Marcel proclaimed the bicycle as a seemingly perfect design. A form that had persisted for so long was certainly something to take note of, especially as a young and upcoming designer.

Marcel began experimenting with tubular construction using techniques perfected by plumbers to bend tubing. He wanted to avoid hard angles and welding pieces together, which would hamper the achievement of a clean appearance. So, when Marcel's architect friend gave him the idea to bend steel tubing, he set out to apply the same principles to furniture construction.

Chrome-Plated Curves and Colorful Leather

Originally designed in 1925, The Wassily Chair offers clean, chrome-plated curves and leather surfaces in a variety of colors. World-renowned for its classic style, the Wassily Chair makes an ideal addition to office environments that focus on design.

Knoll can customize these chairs to your precise specifications, including your choice of 27 Spinneyback leather colors. You can also opt for canvas with chrome tubing, or even choose gold-plated tubing. Whichever version you go with, you can be certain this chair will bring a unique aesthetic to your company.

Influential To Designers For Decades

Marcel Breuer was still uncertain of himself as a designer back when he first started experimenting with the tubular construction of furniture. Nearly 100 years later, many of his designs are a staple of the Knoll brand. Today, the design details and dimensions used by Marcel are inspiring designers of all types in their offices and homes.

Whether the interior design of your business demands white, black, or red leather lounge chairs, Knoll has a Wassily Chair to liven up your space. If you're seeking something bolder, you can custom order these chairs with gold plated tubing, vivid colors of Spinneyback leather, or even a haired hide upholstery.

Design history mavens will also love the KnollStudio logo and signature of Marcel Breuer that's stamped on the chair's base.
