What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Totally Tubular Chairs
One of the first tubular chairs to gain popularity was designed by Bauhaus student and instructor Marcel Breuer in 1925. When re-released in the '60s, it became known as The Wassily Chair. It was inspired by the handlebars of a bicycle, and it's so iconic that we will dedicate an entire ideabook to it next week.
Does "Breuer chair" sound familiar? If have you watched Rodney Dangerfield do the Triple Lindy in Back to School as many times as I have, you've also heard this: "Please don't throw your clothes on the Breuer chair" "How come all of our furniture has names?" "You have no class Thornton." Seriously, if you're having a rough day, click on that Triple Lindy link. It has the power to completely turn things around.
The Wassily Chair by Marcel Breuer dates from the mid-1920s. I can't help but be amazed that this chair has been in production for almost a century. Constructed of bent steel tubes and leather straps, it's said to have been inspired by the frame design of Breuer's bicycle.

Marcel breuer: As iconic as they are beautiful, these original-production chairs and prototypes from just about every major architect and designer provide a wonderful glimpse into the evolution of 20th-century design. From Thonet's bentwood and Saarinen's molded fiberglass to Breuer's rationalism and Venturi's wit, this exhibit is filled with some of the most beautiful objects of the last century.
