The Cesca chair was designed in 1928 by Marcel Breuer. He used traditional craftsmanship alongside industrial methods and materials to make modern tubular steel furniture. The Cesca chair, also called B32, marked a revolution in the German art school Bauhaus in 1928, focusing on the excessive use of modern shapes and materials. The Cesca is undoubtedly one of the most multi-functional chairs ever made, as shown in this article from the NY Times in 1991. For decades it was considered the quintessential desktop chair.
The Cesca chair, a classic design that has stood the test of time.
Marcel Breuer lost the authority on this particular structural concept in favour of a Bauhaus partner, Mart Stam, and his Cantilever chair. However, in terms of design history, this chair, which was designed for sitting in the air, will always be credited to Breuer. Its name is another matter altogether; it was originally called B32, but this was not considered a very commercial name. We think Cesca is a much better name, and this is what the Italian furniture firm Gavina Spa renamed it. But who was Cesca? She was Marcel’s daughter, Francesca.
We are manufacturers of this exclusive chair.
We, KullDesign wanted to create our own personal tribute to this chair. It’s handmade in our workshop, made of chromed steel with a glossy finish and a backrest and seat made of beechwood and natural bulrush mesh. The finishes are high quality and very resistant, and add a more rustic touch to the chair, while keeping with the sophisticated style of the creator’s other chairs.
This is a classic design that has stood the test of time. It brings elegance, comfort and style to any space, whether it be your home or office.
