Description

Cesca B32 chair designed by Marcel Breuer in 1928. The structure made of chromed steel tubes is available in rattan or beech upholstered seat. One of the main reasons which persuaded Marcel Breuer to use steel tubes for the realization of the chair structures (instead of springs and rubber bands) relies upon their intrinsic elasticity.
The upholstered seat is available in 3 different leather types or in eco-leather or fabric covers.
This reproduction of Marcel Breuer's Cesca B32 chair is a custom-made product hand-crafted by an Italian workshop.

Leather Features
Calf LeatherCalf Leather: bovine leather coming from European and Extra-european slaughterhouses, chrome tan, dyeing according to CEE rules, average measure m2 4/5 and thickness 0,9/1 mm. Calf leather or contract leather is a corrected grain leather. It has a very competitive price, it's fairly soft to the touch and long lasting. Calf leather is a material with an excellent value for money.



Full Grain LeatherFull Grain Leather: bovine leather coming from European and Extra-european slaughterhouses, chrome tan, dyeing according to CEE rules, average measures m2 4/5 and thickness 1,4/1,6 mm. Grain leather is still corrected grain but with a higher thickness than Calf Leather. This guarantees a longer duration and resistance. This leather surface is generally a little bit coarser to the touch compared to other kind of leathers.


Aniline LeatherAniline Leather: bovine leather coming from European and Extra-european slaughterhouses, chrome tan, dyeing according to CEE rules, average measure m2 4/5 and thickness 1,1/1,2 mm. Aniline leather is the most valuable leather used in the furniture sector. The superficial grain is natural and without corrections, it's also possible to catch a glimpse of the leather pores, veins and lines; in fact the surface is not always homogeneous as in full grain or calf leathers. Aniline Leather also results very soft to the touch.

Designer

Marcel BreuerMarcel Breuer (Pécs, 1902 – New York, 1981)
Marcel Breuer has been one of the greatest architects of the Century, and that was already pretty clear during the 20s when, at 32, he was studying at Bauhaus carpentry. Hartmann, a master artisan, recalls that Breuer with courage and perseverance questioned the sacred rules of Bauhaus and found very personal solutions to them. During the years at Bauhaus he designed many furniture for a prototype house and became co-founder of a cooperative for architecture. From 1925 to 1928 he supervised the carpentry class. His first chairs in steel tube belong to that period of time as well as his first furniture pieces: he furnished the houses of Bauhaus masters and Erwin Piscator apartment in Berlin.
In 1937 Breuer moved to the United States where he lived until his death. In Cambridge (Massachusetts) he managed a studio together with Walter Gropius and for nine years he had been working as a professor of architecture at Harvard Univeristy. Breuer produced a series of great design projects: Unesco building in Paris, "De Bijenkorf" mall in Rotterdam, Usa embassy in Hague, Whitney Museum of American Art in New York and Sport Park in Flushing Meadows. After the 30s he stopped designing furniture and he started with tapestry. The great quality of Breuer architectures is given by the combination of great beauty and functionality.
