Marcel Breuer Cesca chair S32

The designs for this model were a result of Breuer’s experiments with the principle of a cantilever chair that did not need back legs – better known as a “free-swinger”. Cesca armchair 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." The functional pieces of tubular steel furniture with their clear formal language revolutionized home furniture design and superbly complemented the modern architecture of that era. The high quality Italien leather is attractive and a necessity to ensure that the end product maintains a high standard.

ItaliaDesigns produces this Marcel Breuer Cesca chair S32 with chromed frame, seat and back upholstered in leather, black or natural wood finish (on photo black finish)

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.
