Design History : Marcel Breuer

via Daily Icon

Last Spring during my visit at Kröller-Müller museum in Arnhem (great art collection!), I paused and sat down on this very very comfortable chair. I recognized the design of the chair as it is a famous piece from the Bauhaus era, but I didn't know the designer. So this is what I know now : B3 Chair 'Wassily' by Marcel Breuer.
For me it's not THE most beautiful chair, but it definitely has the best sitting experience and I would love to read books in it!
