In 1925, Marcel Breuer presented a new chair design, as has never been seen before, which immediately provided him a high esteem as a designer. This spectacular object had the legendary name of Wassily Chair. The design of the Wassily Chair is characterized by its steel pipes of different lengths which are connected by screw connection which are visible on purpose. The circular tube steel is seamlessly shaped and very glossy. The black of the seating surface and the backrest provide a stylish contrast to the Wassily Chair. Therefore, the Wassily Chair, also known as "Chair B3", stands out as very modern, timeless, transparent, as well as innovative. Many friends in the environment of designers admired this work.
In 1926, finally the production of the Wassily Chair started, and it is up to date, most probably, the most revolutionary idea in the range of furniture design. Marcel Breuer regarded his furniture creations as apparatus of everyday life. Their main features: light, useful, affordable, demountable, and hygienic. Steel pipe was the matching material, although it was very unpopular as material then. Just like the Wassily Chair. The designer made a big range of experiments and, as an enthusiastic bicyclist, he took his inspiration of the steadiness of the curved handlebars. His observations and experiences would be recognizable later then in the Wassily Chair.
