Marcel Breuer (1902-1981)

"My sudden idea that led me to the design of the tubular furniture when cycling over the material of the bicycle handlebar - he unexpectedly spread In 1937, Marcel Breuer recalls the impulse that led him to develop tubular steel furniture from 1924, probably the most influential contribution from Germany to modernist furniture in the first half of the 20th century.

»The fabric-covered Tubular steel furniture has the convenience of good upholstered furniture, without their weight, price, unwieldiness and unhygienic nature.

One type has been worked out for the necessary types of application and improved so far, to a variation not more was possible. Precision steel tube was used for the construction of seating furniture for the first time. The steel pipe is more resistant in small cross-sectional dimensions than any other material heretofore used for seating. It gives a special lightness and also a special appearance. «(From the catalog of Marcel Breuer's company» Standard Furniture «, Berlin 1926 - Reprint Tecta 1992)
