O.K., back to Bauhaus! Breuer was also an architect, and like most of his European colleagues, he had to flee Europe during World War II. He landed at Harvard along with his Bauhaus mentor, Walter Gropius, and went on to become one of the Harvard 5, a group of Bauhaus architects who landed in New Canaan, Conn. in the 1940s (think of the houses in The Ice Storm). Besides Breuer, this group included Philip Johnson, Eliot Noyes, Landis Gores and John M. Johansen. This house looks like one that this quintet would have admired, and it was made for Wassily chairs.
