Cesca Armchair: the Queen of Cantiliver

The ceska armchair by Marcel Breuer should be considered a sort of stylist revolution in design seats field: indeed this chair belongs to the cantilever chair (or chair shelter) that have a particular characteristic in the framework. This kind of chair doesn’t stand on the classical four feet (the four feet on the floor is the normal framework for a chair) but this chair stands only on two uprights. These uprights are folded over the line of the floor and are a part of the complete chair framework.

And the ceska armchair by Marcel Breuer is not the first cantilever chair in history design (because the paternity for this kind of chair is recognized, only for a few years, to the Dutch architect and designer Stam) but represents the full evolution of this model of chair. The ceska armchair by marcel Breuer also defines the stylistic characteristics that became typical for this kind of chair.

 A champion of the modern movement and protégé of Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer is equally celebrated for his achievements in architecture and furniture. Breuer was a student and subsequently a master carpenter at the Bauhaus in the early 1920s. His entire body of work, both architecture and furniture, embodies the driving Bauhaus objective to reconcile art and industry.

While at the Bauhaus, Breuer revolutionized the modern interior with his tubular-steel furniture collection — inspired by bicycle construction and fabricated using the techniques of local plumbers. His first designs, including the Wassily, remain among the most identifiable icons of the modern furniture movement.

Indeed the ceska armchair (its name derived from the name of the adoptive daughter of Marcel Breuer, Francesca) represents the result of a complex study on the using of various materials: the goal of this study is to create an object that was not only beautiful, but also modern and functional. The functionality is a tribute to the principles of Modernism (the Hungarian designer was one of the most famous exponent of this artistic movement in Europe), for what the object (and also the architectonic projects) should be useful  for the users (and for the house, these should be useful for the inhabitants).
While Breuer never worked directly for Knoll, he is nonetheless an influential figure in the company’s history. He was an early mentor to Florence Knoll during her time in the office of Walter Gropius in the 1930s. It was also Breuer who suggested that Hans Knoll hire Eszter Haraszty, the Knoll Textiles director responsible for many of the Knoll Planning
Unit’s most memorable color combinations.

And if you will choose the ceska armchair by Marcel Breuer for your home or office, you will find an high comfortable and functional chair, with a comfortable seat and a great flexibility. You can use this armchair for different purposes, like a dinner or studio chair, thank also to its dimension, that are not too cumbersome.  Choose the ceska armchair by Marcel Breuer and you will buy a piece of modern history design, with an unique style.
