Cane Chair

Marcel Breuer’s influence on furniture design is perhaps his greatest legacy. His experiments in tubular bent steel brought flexible, cantilevered seating to the mass market, and his Wassily and Cesca chairs are considered some of the most influential furniture designs to ever be created and continue in production to this day. His legacy as an important 20th century modern design in the realms of architecture, furnishings, and teaching can still be felt today. Manufacturer- Thonet
