Over the weekend I scored, not one but four, Cesca style armchairs for the shop. I say "style" because I can not find any markings on the chairs. I would not want to say they are original without proof but I do know they are vintage and were purchased in California years ago. Here is a little history I took from the Knoll website regarding Marcel Breuer's iconic chair. Knoll is still producing the chair today.
"Three years after designing his iconic Wassily Chair, which is believed to be the first bent tubular steel chair design, Marcel Breuer created the Cesca Chair (1928). Named in tribute to his daughter Francesca, the simple design pairs the industrial age aesthetic of tubular steel with caning and wood. An original 1928 chair is included in MoMA’s permanent collection. “It’s among the 10 most important chairs of the 20th century,” said Cara McCarty, associate curator, department of architecture and design at MoMA."
So what do you think? Are you a fan?
