The Wassily Chair, also known as the Model B3 chair, was designed by Marcel Breuer who was inspired by the frame of a bicycle, between 1925-1926, while he was the head of the cabinet-making at the Bauhaus in Dessau. Despite the popular belief, the chair was not designed for the painter Wassily Kandinsky, who was concurrently on the Bauhaus school. However, Kandinsky had admired the completed design and Breuer designed a duplicate for Kandinsky’s personal use. Chair is in elaborately curved steel frame with original hexagon socket screws. Seat, back and armrests made of high quality grain leather. It´s build is complex in appearance but simple in construction, a contrast which has earned its place in museums throughout the world, and in thousands of modern-minded homes. It is possible to buy a pair of chairs and both are signed on the upper inside part of the leather – visible on the photos. They are in a very good vintage condition with minimal signs of wear. Mild scuffs and traces of use on the leather while the steel is in a perfect condition.
