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.
