Marcel BREUER

In 1925, Breuer revolutionized the world of design by using steel tubing to design the B3 armchair, also called Wassily in homage to Kandisky. Its technical prowess and functional approach made it a legendary armchair. Although extremely modern, it wasn't until the 1960s that it achieved commercial success.
