What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Totally Tubular Chairs
Another Breuer design, the Cesca chair, uses the strength of the tubes to defy gravity. I remember this chair being totally groovy in the '70s, then becoming dated in the late '80s. Now it's totally hot again. I have a theory that once a piece goes through an uncool phase and then comes back again, it's cool forever. I'm still gathering data: What do you think about this theory?
Becky Harris added this to Modern Icons: Marcel Breuer's B32 Chair
In a legal battle in the 1920s, architect Mart Stam received credit for the original idea of this chair. That is why Breuer never patented it, and why you can find imitations for under $100. Breuer's chair was originally produced by Thonet, then by Italian company Gavina (they gave it the name "Cesca" after Breuer's daughter Francesca), and today is produced by Knoll, who bought Gavina.

Marcel Breuer: Their structure is crafted of tubular steel, a material that fascinated Breuer. He was inspired by the way it was used in bicycle design and the first result was his Wassily Chair in 1925. In 1928 the Cesca Chair took the tubular steel into a new and exciting cantilevered shape and combined it with a caned seat and back.
