Knoll states that while apprenticing at the Bauhaus in 1925 Breuer designed this tubular steel chair named for his Wassily Kandinsky Bicycle. Other sites claim that the chair was known as the B3 by Thornet. The discussion continues that it was renamed after Breuer made a duplicate of Thornet’s B3 chair and gave it to Kandinsky who was on staff at the Bauhaus. Looks like a good research project for later in the semester. I will keep you informed about what I find.

Chair CardsThis blog was started to track the exceptional work by the students of UNCG in the Interior Architectural Design Program. Our History 221 and 222 classes use these cards to help familiarize us with historically significant design and designers. The initial purpose is for the students, however, it will remain for comments and use by anyone interested in design. - Brian - BSPeck@uncg.edu
