Marcel Breuer Cesca cane armchair

Designed in 1928, Marcel Breuer’s Cesca chair married traditional craftsmanship with industrial methods and materials to help make tubular steel furniture an international sensation and a modern institution. The cantilevered form exploits the possibilities unique to the material and gives the chair added flexibility and comfort. Cesca chair has no legs and it relies on supporting from the tensile properties of steel tubing. It uses non-reinforced steel tubing, thereby creating a free-swinging chair that approached his ideal of "sitting on columns of air." In addition to the Cesca chair this chair comes with armrests that add to its simple style and makes it ideal for an office environment.

ItaliaDesigns produces the Marcel Breuer Cesca chair with cromed frame, seat and back in cane, black or natural wood finish.

Marcel Breuer

Marcel Lajos („Lajkó “) Breuer (* May 21st, 1902 in Fünfkirchen, Austro-Hungary; † July 1st, 1981 in New York) was a German-American architect and designer of Hungarian-Jewish origin. After carpenter apprenticeship at Bauhaus Weimar Breuer worked in the office of Walter Gropius for several years, but then became independent. In 1933 he emigrated from the Third Reich due to his Jewish origin and moved via Hungary and London into the USA. There he established, among other things, the Architecture Faculty of the Harvard University in cooperation with Gropius.
