Marcel Breuer overcame the physical weight of the traditional club chair by replacing its massive upholstered body with a skeleton-like structure made of bent steel tubes.
He took advantage of the flexibility of the material, complementing it with tautly stretched fabric strips of reinforced canvas for the seat and backrest. B3 did not take the name “Wassily” until the early sixties, when the Italian furniture manufacturer Dino Gavina bought the production rights: Marcel Breuer had designed the armchair for the home of the painter Wassily Kandinsky, who taught at the Bauhaus. From 1922 to 1933.
