History in the Making
by Capoferro Design Build Group
Whether you already own a Wassily chair or intend to buy one, the most interesting and intriguing part of this piece of furniture is the amount of history that it carries along with it and the many stories linked to it. Also known as the Model B3 chair, it was designed by Marcel Breuer while he was the head of the cabinet-making workshop at the Bauhaus in 1925-26.
The handles of Breuer’s Adler bicycle were the inspiration for the chair and though it was named ‘Wassily’ because one of the first admirers of the chair was renowned Russian abstract painter Wassily Kandinsky; it was not designed by Breuer initially for his use. Over the years the name Wassily chair stuck around and since the 1950s it has been in continuous production.
