The Wassily Chair combines a gleaming, bent chrome steel frame, comprised of a series of strong, spare lines, with thick leather slings used for the seat, back and armrests.
Originally designed in the mid 1920’s, the groundbreaking design was only made possible by a recent advance in German steel manufacturing that allowed for the production of seamless steel tubing. Tubing that had a seam could not be bent – it would collapse. But this new, seamless steel opened up an entire new world of design possibilities.
More than 80 years after its creation, the first chair ever fashioned from bent steel tubing remains as fresh, modern and desirable as when it was first introduced. With its clean lines and elegant construction, The Wassily Chair is a work of functional art truly worthy of its illustrious name.
