Bauhaus furniture design was based on the premise that it was necessary to develop new and radically different forms for the pieces of furniture that would be in the modern home. The cantilevered chair shown here, designed by Marcel Breuer in 1928, is now so familiar that it is hard to imagine the shock of seeing a chair without back legs, formed from a seemingly continuous loop of chrome-plated steel.
The Bauhaus Cantilever Chair (D 40) was designed by Marcel Breuer at the Bauhaus Dessau in 1928. The D 40 armrests are made of beech (natural or black colored). The frame is made of nickel plated steel, while the seat and back are made of either natural cane wicker work or leather, black, white or nature or in a special fabric called 'Eisengarn'. Eisengarn is a very strong fabric developed by the Bauhaus Dessau to assure that the seat and back covering stays in shape even after a long time use.
