Marcel Breuer, the Bauhaus, Bologna and Kandinsky
The history of the iconic Wassily chairs: from the Bauhaus school to Knoll
These high-end armchair chairs were designed at the carpentry workshop of the Bauhaus school of art and design located in Dessau, Germany. Marcel Breuer, who soon became the head of the carpentry workshop, was responsible for this revolutionary idea in the 1920s. However, the success of this design chair was not immediate. After several failures, it was the entrepreneur Dino Gavina, originally from Bologna, who collaborated with Breuer and successfully launched the B3 model on the national and international market. The first buyer of this chair was Wassily Kandinsky and, in his honour, the chair was renamed 'Wassily'.
