BR10 | Bookcase
Wood veneer, Steel and Wood
Bookcase with four shelves in a variety of finishes: cherrywood/ashwood veneer, black/white laminate. Frame in chrome- plated tubular steel. This bookcase represents one of the most anomalous designs in Breuer’s linguistic research. The tubular steel is discontinuous and touchs the ground with two molded ends, cut and closed with a disk surmounting the section. Designed between 1930 and 1931, it was originally produced in Switzerland in 1930 and sold in Zurich and Basel in the modern furniture stores owned by Sigfried Gideon, Werner Moser and Rudoldf Graber. In 1933 it was included in the collection designed by Breuer for Wohnbedarf.
