Circa 1970s "Wassily" Chairs

Item Details

A pair of Wassily chairs, of bands of thick black leather belting upon a curving chrome finished steel frame. The iconic modernist chair was designed by Marcel Breuer in 1925, inspired by bicycle framework. These became known as ‘Wassily’ chairs, after Kandinsky, a colleague of Breuer’s at the Bauhaus school, and an early owner of the chair. As an epitome of the mid-century modernist design, these chairs gained notoriety, particularly when manufactured by New York Design firm Knoll from 1968. This particular pair do not bare the Knoll mark, however the quality of the leather, and the smooth steel ends to the frame, as well as the signs of aging, are highly suggestive of a high quality early replica, if not an original.


- some light oxidation on the frame.


31.5" W x 29.0" H x 28.0" D
