MATRIX20 Collection
Lounge chair with frame in chrome plated steel tube. Seat, back and arms in colored saddle leather. Flat welded endcaps.1. In 1925 Marcel Breuer in collaboration with Karl Koerner, head smith of the Junkerswerken in Dessau, produced the first model of the curved tubular steel lounge chair better known as “Wassily” chair. Technical notes: autogenic welding of tubular structure in nickel-plated steel (the first experimental model consisted of iron tube) with 20 welding points; rigid metal structure on 4 legs with handcrafted production of several pieces to be jointed (with considerable waste of technological time); canvas covering. In 1926 the chair was disassembled again and the material was used for other experimental models. 2. This model was produced at the beginning of 1926 in the Junkerswerken of Dessau with Marcel Breuer’s suggestions and is considered the prototype of the mass-produced “Wassily” chair. Technical notes: autogenic welding of tubular structure in nickel-plated steel with 14 welding points; metal structure on two legs; technologically realizable only by means of artisan techniques element by element; canvas covering, (subsequently replaced by Eisengarn covering). This unique model is at the Bauhaus in Dessau. 3. This version produced at the Bauhaus is dated 1927. It presents some of the elements characteristic of the later model such as the continuity of the back’s tubular frame.
