Cesca Chair by Marcel Breuer
The Cesca Chair by Marcel Breuer debuted in 1928 and has not lost popularity since. It has been referred to as “among the ten most important chairs in the 20th century.”
Breuer combined and connected traditional craftsmanship with an industrial style to produce the perfect balance between the two. It was one of the first chairs made with tubular steel to be mass produced. The name for the iconic chair was inspired by Breuer’s adopted daughter, Francesca. The chair has had three official manufacturers: Thonet, Gavina, and Knoll.
The Cesca chair continues to be a classic in the present time. It is difficult for the simplistic lines and forms present in the design of the chair to ever go out of style or cease to be popular. The classic, neutral materials used can fit into the aesthetic of most spaces, past and present.
