Marcel Breuer ""Cesca"" Chairs, Set of Four

Set of four Marcel Breuer (1902-1981) vintage re-edition "Cesca" armchair. Cantilevered tubular chrome frame with maple and cane seats, backs, and arms. Circa 1970, made in Italy.

15 Chair available

Cesca chair, named after his daughter Francesca, marries caning and hardwood Beech with the industrial-age aesthetic of cantilevered tubular steel. Functional, simple and distinctly modern. Cesca chair has no legs and it relies on supporting from the tensile properties of steel tubing. It uses non-reinforced steel tubing, thereby creating a free-swinging chair that approached his ideal of "sitting on columns of air."

The chairs were first produced in 1929 by Thonet, then made by Knoll.
