Marcel Breuer Cesca Armchair
Marcel Breuer designed The Cesca Chair in 1928 with the interest of comfort in mind. Like his progressive Wassily Chair (1925) the Cesca Chair is constructed of tubular steel. He choose to use one continuous steel tube in a cantilever style, a style that many designers at the time were using, including Mart Stam and Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe. With comfort in mind he rounded the front edge of the seat so as not to cut into the sitter's legs. Breuer's version with a beech wood seat and back was nevertheless a good solution to the structural stiffness of a cantilever frame.
The chair was named 'Cesca' as a tribute to his daughter Francesca. The Cesca was never patented, notes a 1991 New York Times article. 'While Breuer signed a contract with Knoll Group, his design has always been in the public domain,' said the group's vice president of design at the time.
Marcel Breuer was not the inventor of the cantilevered tubular steel armchair — that credit goes to Mart Stam — he his, however, responsible for developing and refining the possibilities. In the 1930s, Breuer fled from Germany to England, and eventually came to the United States where he taught with Walter Gropius at Harvard's School of Architecture. In 1941 Marcel Breuer founded his own architectural studio in New York. There he developed a number of residential designs.
